Watch Sujit Nair in conversation with former Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan on the NCP crisis . ON Sunday Ajit Pawar took oath as the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra in the presence of chief minister Eknath Shinde and existing deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis at Raj Bhavan. former Chief Minister and patriarch of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), displayed his strength while paying homage to Yashwantrao Chavan, Maharashtra’s first Chief Minister, at his memorial in Karad district. During an emotional address to his supporters, Sharad Pawar said “My fight against communal forces begins today. Such rebellions happen. I will rebuild the party,” Mr Pawar said in Karad today. He also accused the BJP of creating fear in society. Addressing a press conference later in Satara, Sharad Pawar also said he has launched a statewide tour to strengthen the NCP and boost the confidence of party workers, unfazed by actions of a few leaders. “We will ensure that those who attempted to fracture the NCP are put in their rightful place,Said Mr Pawar. Similar to what Uddhav Thackeray had said during the initial stages of the Shinde rebellion. However, In a press interaction, Sharad Pawar stated his decision not to pursue a legal battle, opting instead to engage directly with the people. Subsequently, on Sunday night, the NCP filed a disqualification petition against Ajit Pawar and eight MLAs who were sworn in as ministers in the Eknath Shinde-led government. The NCP claimed that Ajit lacks the support of 36 party MLAs, while the party’s working president and Ajit’s cousin, Supriya Sule, mentioned that his defection would not impact their relationship. Interestingly, the ongoing situation reveals an uncommon aspect of party splits. Ajit Pawar is yet to disclose the number of supporting MLAs, apart from the nine who were sworn in as ministers on Sunday. In fact, Ajit Pawar states that the entire party stands united with him. With the NCP possessing 53 MLAs and nine MLCs, the support of 36 is crucial for Ajit Pawar to assert his claim over the party and its symbol; otherwise, he faces disqualification. Reports claim Ajit Pawar has, in a letter to the Governor, claimed the support of more than 40 MLAs, along with their signatures. The claim had many MLAs alleging that they unwittingly gave their signatures without knowing the purpose. Neither Ajit Pawar nor Sharad Pawar have produced MLAs in their support, and a handful declaring their allegiance to Pawar Senior on Twitter are the only NCP leaders to make it official.
