Mumbai, 10th September: Maharashtra politics has heated up after Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar’s anti-Congress statement. The main opposition BJP has said that Sharad Pawar has shown the mirror to the Congress while accurately describing the situation.
At the same time, there is resentment in the Congress but its leaders are reacting cautiously.
Sharad Pawar had said in an interview to a news web portal that the condition of Congress has become like the landlords of Uttar Pradesh. Thousands of acres of land were snatched from the landlords and now they are left with only 10-15 acres of land. They do not have the strength to even repair the haveli, but when they leave the house in the morning, they say that it was all their land.
This statement of Sharad Pawar has caused huge outrage in the Congress, but the party leaders are reacting very cautiously.
State President Nana Patole said that Sharad Pawar is a big leader and he is a small leader. That is why he does not want to answer Sharad Pawar’s statement in his own language. The people on whom the Congress handed over its land by trust, the same people stole the Congress land.
Nana Patole said that even today people see Congress as an alternative to BJP. There are people following the ideology of Congress in every area of the country. Very soon the time will come when Congress will again form its government at the Centre.
At the same time, senior BJP leader and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Devendra Fadnavis said that Sharad Pawar has shown the mirror to the Congress while accurately describing the condition of the Congress.
Fadnavis further stated that Congress is a party with feudal ideology. Still, the Congress has not recovered from the thought that its power is slowly eroding. Congress should again work among the people, but still the party is not ready for it.
It may be mentioned that in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress had won 44 and 52 seats respectively. The party has not even been able to get the status of the main opposition party in the Lok Sabha for the last two times.
At the same time, the Congress did not appear as strong in the assembly elections as well. Congress has its own government in only three states- Punjab, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, while it has coalition government in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Jharkhand.
