On Saturday, after NCP supremo Sharad Pawar expressed his displeasure over his nephew and NCP leader Ajit Pawar for forming government with the BJP when NCP was already in final talks with Shiv Sena and Congress, Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut in a press conference slammed Ajit Pawar.
Raut said, “Sharad Pawar saheb has nothing to do with this, Ajit Pawar has backstabbed the people of Maharashtra. Uddhav Thackeray and Sharad Pawar are in touch; they’ll be meeting today. They might also address the media together. The fact is Ajit Pawar and the MLAs supporting him have insulted Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Maharashtra.”
Raut said that Sharad Pawar had noticed Ajit Pawar’s ‘suspicious behaviour’ last night. Raut claimed that Ajit Pawar couldn’t even make eye contact with them. He said, “Till late last night Ajit Pawar was sitting with us and he then disappeared. His phone was also switched off.”
