Ajit Pawar suddenly left Sharad Pawar and joined BJP and shocked many. So why did Ajit Pawar rebel? It has become a topic of discussion across the state.
There was a dormant struggle in the nationalist leadership from the state leadership. Since Sharad Pawar is active in Delhi, who is going to be the party’s chief in the state, Ajit Pawar or Supriya Sule has competition. However, Sharad Pawar cleverly gave Supriya Sule a chance in the Lok Sabha while Ajit Pawar empowered the party organization in the state. Nevertheless, the uncle-nephew continued to disagree. However, from time to time, Sharad Pawar ended the struggle within the family .
In this year’s assembly elections, neither party has a majority. Also, the pre-election alliance of BJP and Shiv Sena broke down on the issue of chief minister. As a result, competition was started between all the political parties on how the government will be formed and who will be the Chief Minister. The Shiv Sena, which came with the Maha Aghadi Idia , initially decided to give the Chief Minister five years. However after discussion the demand of the Chief Minister for two and a half years came from the NCP.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has assured to Sharad Pawar for chief ministership for two and a half years, Ajit Pawar was told by an industrialist. After that, when such a settlement was made for the Chief Minister in the Shiv Sena and NCP, Ajit Pawar realized that he had not been given the idea. Therefore it has come that whether Sharad Pawar wants Supriya Sule to become the Chief Minister. That led Ajit Pawar to take extreme step.
Meanwhile Along with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders, Pawar family members are putting every effort to convince rebel leader Ajit Pawar to return to the party and the family. Ajit is the nephew of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar.
Sources said that Sharad Pawar’s wife Pratibha and daughter Supriya had held discussions with Ajit and insisted that he resign as Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ deputy and return to the NCP.
Ajit’s supporters claim that the leader was unhappy with Sharad Pawar’s decision to join hands with the Sena and the Congress. A section of Ajit supporters also say that he was unhappy with Sharad Pawar promoting Supriya as his political heir.
