Ajit Pawar meets uncle Sharad Pawar on Day 2, senior leader 'was silent' again

Mumbai/IBNS: A day after Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar met his uncle and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar along with several loyalist MLAs to seek blessings, he visited the party patriarch again on Monday.

Praful Patel, senior Pawar's close aide who rebelled along with Ajit Pawar to join the BJP led-Eknath Shinde government in Maharashtra, said several NCP cabinet ministers were not present during the surprise visit on Sunday.

"They met Sharad Pawar today after the Assembly session, and he patiently listened to us," he said, adding that the veteran politician didn't say anything.

Meanwhile, the Sharad Pawar camp consulted with their legal team in Delhi for passing a resolution through MLAs, media reports said.

Praful Patel and Ajit Pawar will attend the big NDA meeting in Delhi on Tuesday.

After meeting Sharad Pawar on Sunday, the rebel camp said that they had requested the senior leader to ensure that the party isn't divided.

"Sharad Pawar didn't reply to us, he just kept on listening to what we were saying and after meeting him, we are going back," Praful Patel had said.

"Today we met our God and our leader Sharad Pawar to take his blessings," Praful Patel said as the rebels emerged from the meeting on Sunday.

"We came here without asking for any appointment. We understood Sharad Pawar reached here for a meeting and that's why we all came here to take his blessings," he said.

According to reports, Sharad Pawar addressed the party workers later in the day and made it clear that he will continue his "progressive politics" and never ally with the BJP.
