Ajit’s Claim To Be With NCP Is Bid To Create Confusion, Says Sharad Pawar


Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar on Sunday said there was no question of an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party in Maharashtra.

He was reacting to his nephew Ajit Pawar's tweets that he was still with NCP and that the "BJP-NCP alliance" would provide a stable government in the state.

"Shri Ajit Pawars statement is false and misleading in order to create confusion and false perception among the people," he added.

A day after his stunning volte face, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Sunday said he was still with the NCP, adding Sharad Pawar continued to be his leader.

"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 tweeted.
