Sharad Pawar press brief

Amid the vote counts in Maharashtra, NCP patron Sharad Pawar stated that people 'rejected the arrogance' of BJP. Moreover, he took a jibe at Satara's sitting MP Udayanraje Bhosale who jumped the boat to BJP, just weeks ahead of the elections. 

Pawar said, "People have rejected the arrogance of the people in power. I want to thank all the allies for their support. The Opposition has worked hard and all members of Congress-NCP and allies have delivered and given their best. I thank them all. Power comes, power goes but it is important to remain committed to a cause and we thank people for the love they showed."

"The people of constituencies have shown the turncoats their place. Shrivinas Patil was a very good candidate for Satara. I thank the people of Satara. I am going to Satara to thank the people of Satara," he added.  NCP candidate for Satara Shriniwas Patil is currently leading ex-NCP leader Bhosale by over a lakh votes. 

When questioned if NCP will form a government with BJP's ally Shiv Sena, Pawar responded saying, "No decision taken yet. We will decide sitting along with other parties on Shiv Sena. We cannot take the decision alone We want to show people a new leadership and a new country."

"I thank Prime Minister, Home Minister and other Chief Ministers as they visited the state at least for elections. Flood-affected people have been the worst hit. I hope they release help for the people," Pawar added.

Maharashtra Assembly Elections
2 months ago | October 23, 2019 18:25

The result of the Maharashtra assembly elections will be out on October 24, after the voting process concluded on October 21. In the state, the electoral battle between the two alliances--Mahayuti of the BJP, Shiv Sena and Republic Party of India will tussle with the Maha-agadhi led by NCP and the Congress party.

In the saffron alliance, BJP contested on 150 seats, and Shiv Sena fought on 124 seats in Maharashtra. Alliance partners of BJP fielded 14 candidates on the party's lotus symbol. Meanwhile, the Congress contested the polls in alliance with the NCP. Both parties contested on 125 seats each in the 288-member Assembly and its allies on the remaining 38 seats.

Political scenario

The opposition tried to corner the BJP government on the handling of the economy with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi blaming the ruling party for the economic slowdown, unemployment, highlighting issues like "failure" of demonetisation and GST rollout. The BJP, on the other hand, is seeking a second straight term under Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in Maharashtra.

Among other parties, Raj Thackeray's MNS fielded 101 candidates, the CPI 16, the CPM 8. The BSP fielded candidates in 262 constituencies. A total of 1400 Independents are also in the poll arena. The opposition campaign was, however, lackluster as both the Congress and the NCP were plagued by infighting and desertions in the run-up to the polls.

The campaign in Maharashtra was marked by sharp exchange of barbs between the chief minister of Maharashtra and NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who hit the hustings at the age of 79 and addressed a number of rallies. While allies NCP and Congress failed to hold any joint rallies, PM Modi addressed nine rallies across the state, Rahul Gandhi spoke at six public meetings. The campaign also saw an undertone of jostling for supremacy between the BJP and the Shiv Sena, which had fought the last assembly elections separately, winning 122 and 63 seats respectively. The Congress had bagged 42 and the NCP 41 seats. 

Prominent candidates in the fray are Chief Minister Fadnavis and his predecessors from Congress, Ashok Chavan, who is in fray from Bhokar in Nanded district, and Prithviraj Chavan seeking re-election from Karad South in Satara district. Yuva Sena chief Aaditya, the first from the Thackeray family, contested from Mumbai's Worli constituency. NCP's Satara strongman, Shivaji Maharaj's descendent Udayanraje Bhosale jumped the ship to BJP weeks before the elections.
