Sharad Pawar Rethinking His Resignation: Ajit Pawar

Sharad Pawar has reportedly agreed to reconsider his intention to step down as the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), according to NCP leader Ajit Pawar. Ajit Pawar and Supriya Sule requested Sharad Pawar to take two to three days to reconsider his choice when they met him following his resignation as NCP chief.

NCP leader Ajit Pawar told his party’s protesting members that Sharad Pawar would need two to three days to reconsider his decision.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar declared his resignation from the post of party head. “I am resigning from the post of the national president of NCP,” he said in a statement.

He declared his resignation at the launch of the second edition of his autobiography Lok Maze Sangati. “I have three years’ tenure remaining in Rajya Sabha. I will not contest elections henceforth. In these three years, I will concentrate more on issues concerning the state and the country. I will not take any additional responsibilities… One must not be greedy,” he said.

Sharad Pawar is a four-time Maharashtra chief minister. He has also served as Union Defence and Agriculture minister. He was the catalyst in bringing together an unlikely coalition of the NCP, Congress, and then ideologically opposite Shiv Sena to form the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government after the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections.
