Maharashtra Politics: Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar Sunday reached YB Chawan Centre in state capital, Mumbai, to meet Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) founder and his uncle Sharad Pawar.
The meeting is the first interaction of both the leaders after things took a dramatic turn in the NCP with Ajit Pawar taking away his lot of supporting MLAs to join state government.
In today’s meeting, Praful Patel, Chhagan Bhujbal, Aditi Tatkare, Hasan Mashrif were among those who arrived at the centre.
These MLAs had taken oath on July 2 to become ministers in the Shinde-Fadnavis Maharashtra government, which now includes Ajit Pawar’s name after the merger.
