If the NCP’s “Nirdhar Parivartan Yatra” was to make a favourable noise for the party ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha elections, the NCP does seem to be start on the right note. Atleast that is the impression the sabha held in Navi Mumbai left on those who attended it. The second rung party leaders chose the right issues to launch a scathing attack on the BJP and particularly Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In his address, former Dy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar echoed sentiments of housewives by stating that they were having difficulties to make two ends meet while running households.
He said that unemployment is on the rise, people are losing jobs, industries are shutting down and the much publicized Make In India, Make In Maharashtra and Smart City like schemes have failed.
On Ganesh Naik’s assembly defeat, he said that no one ever dreamt he would be defeated.
While paying gratitude to Navi Mumbaikars for voting for Airoli MLA Sandeep Naik and NCP in NMMC, he went on to express his sorrow over the fact that despite doing so many progressive works, Ganesh Naik was defeated.
He said that they faced the same thing in Pimpri Chinchwad.
Ajit Pawar said that probably they faced defeats because they didn’t give false promises to people like the BJP did.
He appealed to citizens to ensure that they vote out the saffron alliance.
Whether Ajit Pawar’s emotional appeal to Navi Mumbaikars to stand by Ganesh Naik struck a chord with Navi Mumbaikars is something the city will find out in October’s assembly elections. Zeba Warsia – NMTV News.
