In yet another attack on BJP, NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said that those who went to jail should not question him. Speaking in Solapur, Pawar took a jibe at the Home Minister saying that those who went to jail should not ask him about what he did for the state. Home Minister Amit Shah was in south Maharashtra's Solapur earlier this month. While addressing the ''Mahajanadesh Yatra'', he had claimed that if BJP opens its door, except Sharad Pawar and Prithviraj Chavan, there will be no one left in their parties. Taking a dig on his remark from the day, Pawar said: "One of their leaders came to Solapur and asked what has Sharad Pawar done for Maharashtra? Don't talk about what I have done and what I have not done...I have never gone to jail. A person who was in jail for so many months is asking what I did for Maharashtra. Don't worry people know what I have done."
Launching a frontal attack on his former colleagues who have quit the NCP to join the ruling BJP ahead of the Assembly elections in Maharashtra, party chief Sharad Pawar on Sunday termed them "cowards" and said people will show them their place in the upcoming assembly elections. "They are cowards. People of Maharashtra will take care of such people in elections," Pawar said, a day after former party leader Udayanraje Bhosale resigned as MP and joined the BJP. "There are some people who have lost their self-respect and switched to the BJP. I think people will show them their place in the assembly elections," he said on September 16.
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Monday said that the NCP and Indian National Congress (INC) will contest 125 seats each in the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly polls. He also said that the remaining 38 seats will be given to smaller allies across the state. In 2014, the two parties had fought the assembly polls separately and were unable to secure 50 seats individually. While INC had won 42 seats, NCP had won only 41 seats.
