“Disrespect us, but not our father”, NCP’s Supriya Sule warns Ajit Pawar

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] : Hitting out at Ajit Pawar’s dig at Sharad Pawar’s age, Nationalist Congress Party working president Supriya Sule on Wednesday in stern response asked deputy CM not to disrespect her father.

“Disrespect us, but not our father (Sharad Pawar). This fight is against the Bharatiya Janata Party government. BJP is the most corrupt party in the country,” said Sule in Mumbai on Wednesday. Earlier, Ajit Pawar took a dig at his uncle Sharad Pawar’s age and urged him to step down and give a chance to the new generation stating that even leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) retire at the age of 75. “You portrayed me as a villain in front of everyone. I still have deep respect for him (Sharad Pawar)…But you tell me, IAS officers retire at 60…even in politics – BJP leaders retire at 75. You can see the example of LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi…That allows the new generation to rise…” “You (Sharad Pawar) give us your blessings…The other day, he went to YB Chavan memorial…I have also been there…but you are 83, aren’t you going to stop?…Give us your blessings and we will pray that you live a long life,” said the Deputy chief minister while addressing party legislators and other workers in Bandra here.

Responding to the jibe, Sule said, “I saw 2019 elections this 84-year-old man fought and won, age is just a number.” Earlier today, Ajit Pawar approached the Election Commission of India to stake claim to NCP’s name and symbol. To which, Sule responded, “The original NCP is with Sharad Pawar and the original symbol is with us”. The junior Pawar also blamed the 82-year-old Sharad Pawar for NCP losing out on the chance to have a chief minister of Maharashtra despite having the support of a majority of MLAs in the year 2014.
