Rahul Gandhi reaches Sharad Pawar’s residence in Delhi

New Delhi [India] : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday arrived at Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar’s residence in Delhi.

NCP president Sharad Pawar is in Delhi on Thursday for a national executive meeting. Notably, Congress and NCP were alliance partners in Maharashtra with Udhav Thackrey Shiv Sena faction, before Ajit Pawar was sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra on Sunday. Ahead of the crucial meeting, several posters have come up in front of the NCP office in support of Pawar.

Some read: “In the fight of truth and lie, the entire country is with Sharad Pawar.”
“India’s history is such that it has never forgiven those who have betrayed,” read another one put up outside Pawar’s residence in Delhi. However, later it was removed by the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC). With the NCP witnessing the unravelling of the party, the Pawar family feud played out on stage on Wednesday as NCP factions headed by Sharad Pawar and his nephew held rival meetings at Yashwantrao Chavan Centre in south Mumbai and in Bhujbal Knowledge City in suburban Bandra, respectively. While sources revealed that Election Commission has received a petition from Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar staking claim to Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the party symbol.

The sources said the Election Commission has also received a caveat from Jayant Patil, who is with the Sharad Pawar group. He also informed the panel that they have initiated a disqualification process against nine MLAs who joined the Eknath Shinde-BJP government in the state on Sunday.
