“He has our blessings. I hope he lives till 100,” said Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis on Friday while speaking about NCP supremo Sharad Pawar amid a split in the party. However, that’s not all that he said, and where did this age debate start from? Lets discuss, but before that if you are watching this on facebook do like our page and if you are watching this on youtube do subscribe to our Youtube channel. On Wednesday, in a show of strength meeting when both senior and junior Pawar had asked party workers to be present, Ajit took a dig at his uncle Sharad Pawar and said, “In other parties, leaders retire after a certain age. In BJP, leaders retire at 75. When are you going to stop? You should also give new people a chance. If we make mistakes, tell us. Your age is 83, will you ever stop or not? You give us blessings,” Ajit Pawar, 63, said. To this, Supriya Sule responded without naming her cousin, “Some people are saying that senior individuals should give us blessings. Why should they stop working? Ratan Tata is 86 years old. Serum Institute’s Cyrus Poonawalla’s age is 84. Amitabh Bachchan is 82…,” Supriya Sule said, also mentioning Warren Buffet and Farooq Abdullah. “Criticize us, not our father,” she said. Interacting with the media today, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis said, “He has our blessings. I hope he lives till 100. He can be in politics as long as he wants. But this attempt by some of his followers to attract sympathy by highlighting his age is not right.” Ajit Pawar requires the support of 36 NCP MLAs to enforce his claim on the party name and symbol. Reports claim that Ajit is currently short of 4 MLAs. However, a much clearer picture will be visible within a week’s time. That’s it for this report.
