NCP working president Supriya Sule on Tuesday dismissed speculation that the party chief Sharad Pawar is moving towards the BJP camp. She said that Sharad Pawar has cleared his stand in his Sangola speech where he said that his party will not go with the BJP as its ideology does not fit in NCP’s political framework.
“I have spoken with Congress and Shiv Sena(UBT). There is no confusion. No need to worry. Confusion must have cleared if you have listened to the Sangola speech and press brief of Sharad Pawar where he has cleared his stand,” she said while talking to reporters.
On Monday, Congress leader Nana Patole slammed Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Sharad Pawar over the “secret” meeting held at Pune and said that such meetings are creating confusion among the people.
Talking to the reporters, Patole said, “Such meetings are creating confusion among the people. If they are relatives, what was the need for them to meet secretly”.
Sharad Pawar had earlier scotched speculation following a meeting between him and Ajit Pawar, saying that it was not a secret meeting.
“What is wrong with meeting my nephew? How it can become secret when it was held at someone’s residence. I was there at his residence,” he said.
Patole also said that he had discussed this with (UBT Shiv Sena) party chief Uddhav Thackeray
