Considering this, they might have sensed the kind of treatment they will get when they go to seek votes. It seems that on that backdrop, this practical decision was taken,” Sharad Pawar stated.

However, this government will complete its five-year term and if we decide to go together in polls, it (the MVA alliance) will once again come to power,” the NCP chief asserted.

On the actions taken by the central businesses in Maharashtra, Sharad Pawar stated it’s not a brand new factor.

He added that the BJP authorities on the Centre has taken a stand to “harass” non-BJP states by utilizing businesses and the identical is occurring in Maharashtra.

“Let them conduct inquiries. Nothing will come out. This is the finest example of the misuse of power by the people in power,” he added.

Sharad Pawar stated he was shocked after studying about former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh’s submission earlier than the court docket that there’s a menace to his life in Maharashtra.

“What to say if a person who worked on several key positions in the Maharashtra police department says that he is scared of his colleagues and the state police,” he added.
