Sharad Pawar’s Sly Dig At Maha Guv Over His Coffee Table Book

The former union minister thanked the governor for sending him the book which he said was a “historical account” of Mr Koshyari’s tenure in the Raj Bhavan.

Sharad Pawar, the NCP supremo, has taken potshots at Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari over his coffee table book Jan Rajyapal. Mr Pawar said such a term does not exist in the Constitution. He also pointed out the absence of advice Guv had given to the Chief Minister on secularism in the publication.

Mr Pawar, in a letter to Mr Koshyari dated October 21, said he was in receipt of the coffee table book which showcases the Governors one year in office.

Mr Koshyari became the governor in September last year when the BJP was in power in Maharashtra.

In November, the Mahavikas Aghadi of Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP assumed the office.

“The word ‘Jan Rajyapal’ (people’s Governor) does not find any mention in the Indian constitution, still the state government published it (the book),” Mr Pawar pointed out in his letter.

The book has photographs of some swearing-in ceremonies and convocations, among other events, held in the last one year, Mr Pawar observed.

“The book doesn’t have information about your advice to Chief Minister on secularism which was taken note of by the Union Home Minister,” Mr Pawar said taking a jibe at the governor.

The former union minister thanked the governor for sending him the book which he said was a “historical account” of Mr Koshyari’s tenure in the Raj Bhavan.
