New Delhi: Soon after nephew Ajit Pawar claimed that he is with the NCP and his uncle is still his leader, NCP chief Sharad Pawar took to Twitter, saying there is no question of forming an alliance with the BJP. He also said that his party has decided to make Shiv Sena and the Congress his ally to form the government in the state. Refuting Ajit Pawar’s claim, the NCP chief said his nephew’s statement is false and misleading.
“There is no question of forming an alliance with @BJP4Maharashtra. NCP has unanimously decided to ally with @ShivSena & @INCMaharashtra to form the government. Shri Ajit Pawar’s statement is false and misleading in order to create confusion and false perception among the people,” he said in a tweet.
The statement from the NCP chief comes soon after Ajit Pawar said he is with the NCP and his uncle Sharad Pawar is still his leader.
After being sacked from the post of party legislative leader of the NCP for supporting the BJP in Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar earlier in the day created confusion on Twitter, saying he is will the NCP still and BJP-NCP alliance will give a stable government in the state.
“I am in the NCP and shall always be in the NCP and @PawarSpeaks Saheb is our leader. Our BJP-NCP alliance shall provide a stable Government in Maharashtra for the next five years which will work sincerely for the welfare of the State and its people,” Ajit said in a series of tweets.
He also said that there is absolutely no need to worry, all is well. “However a little patience is required. Thank you very much for all your support,” he further stated.
In a high-voltage dramatic development, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday took oath as Chief Minister of Maharashtra at 5:17 AM along with Ajit Pawar as is deputy, just hours after the Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena declared their alliance to form the government in the state. As per the new alliance, Uddhav Thackeray was supposed to become the chief minister of the state.
However, miffed by the unexpected move of the BJP, the Shiv Sena on Saturday moved the Supreme Court and sought an immediate floor test in the assembly to prove the majority. Giving a hearing on the plea, the apex court has asked to present before it two letters of support on Monday at 11:30 AM.
