EC allots new party symbol to Sharad Pawar's NCP faction

New Delhi/IBNS: Days after the Election Commission awarded the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) name and the 'clock' symbol to the Ajit Pawar faction, a new symbol has been allotted to the camp led by the party's founder and vertan politician Sharad Pawar.

The symbol given to the Nationalist Congress Party (Shardchandra Pawar) is called 'man blowing turha'.

The symbol depicts a 'turha', a traditional trumpet, which is also known as 'tutari'.

"The Tutari in the form of great valour of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had once deafened the emperor of Delhi. It is a great honour for our party to get Tutari (Man Blowing Turha) as our symbol for upcoming elections. Our Tutari is now ready to shake Delhi's throne under the leadership of Sharadchandra Pawar," NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar) said in a post on X.

The Election Commission's order in favour of the Ajit Pawar-led faction was given on Feb 6.

On Monday, the Supreme Court said that the name given to the Sharad Pawar camp would continue till further orders.

Hearing a petition by the Sharad Pawar camp against the EC order, the bench had given the NCP founder liberty to approach the poll commission for the symbol.

It also directed the poll panel to allot the symbol within a week of the Sharad Pawar group applying for it.

In a huge jolt to his uncle and the Maha Vikas Aghadi in Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar split the NCP in July 2023 and took oath as a deputy chief minister in the Eknath Shinde-led government. Eight other NCP MLAs had been sworn in with him.
