Maharashtra Politics Live Updates, July 8: “We will hold rallies outside Maharashtra too. Na tired hu, na retired (I am neither tired, nor retired),” Pawar said.
Maharashtra Political Crisis Live Updates (July 8): Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar, who kicked off his Maharashtra tour from Yeola in Nashik district, said that he is neither tired, nor retired that he should be taking a step back from politics, an advise that his nephew and now the Deputy CM of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar had given to him. “We will hold rallies outside Maharashtra too. Na tired hu, na retired (I am neither tired, nor retired),” Pawar said. He also said he erred in trusting some people, targeting nephew Ajit over rebellion.
Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar will kick-start his state tour on Saturday by holding a rally at Yeola in Nasik district, the constituency of rebel party leader and minister Chhagan Bhujbal. “He has said that he will meet people and rebuild everything. People stand behind this warrior and you will all see the grand reception he is going to receive,” said NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad. The rally comes amid a power struggle with his nephew Ajit Pawar who became the Deputy CM in the Shiva Shena-BJP government.
Dismissing that there has been a split in the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Praful Patel, with Maharashtra Deputy CM Ajit Pawar by his side, said that more than 40 MLAs support them and hence they have sought the name and symbol of NCP from the election commission. “NCP held a meeting on June 30 in presence of many MLAs and MLCs at Devgiri. In that meeting, Ajit Pawar was chosen as the leader. He then appointed Praful Patel as national working president. This is not a split. Legislative and organisations back Ajit Pawar with majority,” he said.
