When Ajit Pawar decided to accept the BJP’s proposal and join hands with them, the 60 years old Baramati’s dada would have known the risks and challenges. Not because he would be up against the Shiv Sena or Congress-NCP pact of being the secular forces, but because he was taking on NCP President Sharad Pawar.
HAS AJIT PAWAR SENT A MESSAGE IN FAMILY AND PARTY THAT IT’S TIME SHARAD PAWAR HUNG UP HIS BOOTS?
What else explains Ajit Pawar’s decision unless he wants everyone within Pawar family and NCP party know that his time has come and Sharad Pawar must retire now. And that’s why he joined hands with BJP to form a BJP government in Maharashtra.
BJP CONVENIENTLY CLOSES EYES ON AJIT PAWAR’S CRASS REMARK ON DROUGHT
The BJP, right from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and mostly Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis missed no chance or opportunity to take down Ajit Pawar. Each one would remind voters of Ajit Pawar’s crass remark Addressing a gathering near Pune, Ajit said that there was little the state government can do in such times. “If there is no water in the dam, should we urinate into it?” he said. If this wasn’t enough, he followed it up with another cringe-worthy remark, this time on load-shedding. “I have noticed that more children are being born once the lights go off at night. There is no other work then,” he said. Not to forget that the BJP ran a campaign of assuring voters to investigate the Rs 35,000 crore irrigation scam and the Maharashtra Co-operative Bank fraud. All that will bite the dust now as Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was seen shaking hands with Ajit Pawar as his deputy with absolutely no qualms.
IF AJIT PAWAR WINS THIS ONE, HE WILL CREATE HISTORY AND LEGACY
It’s not easy to take on Sharad Pawar in Maharashtra. And this was established beyond doubt with the assembly elections result where PM Modi and Amit Shah watched helplessly has Sr Pawar stunned Maharashtra with one sided campaign and winning more than anyone expected or analysed. Now they have gone after Ajit Pawar to arrest the damage Sharad Pawar is doing to BJP by destroying its image of being invincible. That is why the challenge on hand for Ajit Pawar is massive and if he does manage to pull this off, he will not just create history but script his own, new, individual political legacy outside of uncle Sharad Pawar’s shadow.
