NEW DELHI: NCP-SCP leader Sharad Pawar invited Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde, Ajit Pawar, and Devendra Fadnavis for dinner at his home in Baramati when they visit the city to inaugurate developmental projects.
The development comes amid reports that Ajit Pawar’s possible plan to field his wife from Baramati against Sharad Pawar’s daughter, Supriya Sule, who is the current MP.
“After taking oath as CM of the state, the CM is coming to Baramati for the first time and I am very glad about his visit to attend the Namo Maharojgar Event in Baramati. Therefore I would like to extend the invitation for the meal at my residence after the event along with his other Cabinet colleagues,” Sharad Pawar said in his letter addressed to the chief minister.
While addressing a rally in Baramati earlier this month, Ajit Pawar had claimed that his family has been isolated in the Pawar clan after his decision to split from Sharad Pawar. During the rally, Ajit Pawar made a veiled attack on his uncle Sharad Pawar and said that had he been born in his house, he would have naturally become the national president of the party.
A little over a week after Election Commission’s order granting NCP name and symbol to Ajit Pawar, Maharashtra assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar endorsed it, recognizing the deputy CM as real head of the party as his group has a legislative majority with 41 MLAs on his side and 12 with party founder Sharad Pawar.
