NCP's Jitendra Awhad thanking party Supremo Sharad Pawar tweeted his moment of struggle and rise in politics by releasing his childhood address where he lived in a slum in Tardeo comparing it to how he now handles the Ministry of Housing in Maharashtra.
My childhood address:— Dr.Jitendra Awhad (@Awhadspeaks) January 5, 2020
Shripat Bhavan Chawl,

Today, Minister for Housing, Maharashtra.
Only Honourable #Sharad_Pawar can bring this transformation in one's life.
I have to perform to his confidence in me.
