  • Maharashtra minister and NCP's chief spokesperson Nawab Malik said party leaders cannot be scared off with such a move.

    The Shiv Sena and BJP contested the state assembly polls together in October last year, but parted ways following disagreement over sharing the chief ministerial post for two- and-half years on rotational basis. The Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress then came together and formed government in the state after many deliberations.

    Senior NCP leader D P Tripathi passed away on Thursday in New Delhi after a prolonged illness, family sources said. He was 67.

    The Shiv Sena denied Congress' claim that the Uddhav Thackeray-led party approached the Congress after the 2014 state polls to form a coalition to keep the BJP out of power. The Sena also said that its tie-up with the Congress and NCP after the last year's Assembly elections materalised because Sharad Pawar did not support "BJP's political machinations".

    Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar will be sworn-in as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra on Monday. According to a li...

    Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said NCP chief Sharad Pawar's name should be considered by all political parties for the Presidential post, the election for which will be held in 2022. Asked about the opinion of other political parties on fielding the former Union minister and four-time state chief minister, Raut said he has "merely proposed" Pawar's name.

    Ajit Pawar was speaking at a function in his constituency Baramati in Pune district on Saturday. "I am a party worker who has seen 'saheb' (Sharad Pawar) become chief minister four times. I too, anyhow, became deputy chief minister four times," the 60-year-old leader said, evoking laughter from the audience.

    Sharad Pawar who is the founder of NCP will turn 79 on December 12 this year. NCP has requested the supporters to observe Pawar's birthday as farmer's day and contribute money for the welfare of the disgruntled farmers affected by the unseasonal rains.

    The leaders told Ajit that NCP may take harsh steps if he continued to hold out and made it clear that under no circumstances would NCP back BJP. Patil hinted that the meeting was not successful but the leaders may meet Ajit again. The three are believed to have promised ‘incentives’ in case he comes back.

    Besides the post of DCM, the NCP has got 12 cabinet and four ministers of state posts and around a dozen important portfolios with huge budgetary allocations annually. NCP President Sharad Pawar's nephew Ajit Pawar is the new Finance Minister entrusted with the crucial job of improving the state's precarious financial position.

    Ajit Pawar shocked his party after he was sworn-in as the deputy chief minister and Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Devendra Fadnavis as the chief minister of Maharashtra on Saturday morning.

    "The Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party have 'insulted' public sentiments. The Sena joining hands with Nationalist Congress Party-Congress is not correct," the MNS chief said while addressing the media in Pune.
