Ajit Pawar camp's 18-19 MLAs ready for crossover: Sharad Pawar's grand-nephew Rohit Pawar

Mumbai/IBNS: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Sharad Pawar's grand-nephew Rohit Pawar has reiterated his claims that 18-19 MLAs from the Ajit Pawar camp of Nationalist Congress Party will crossover to their faction, media reports said.

Speaking to reporters, Rohit claimed 18-19 MLAs will crossover to the NCP faction of Sharad Pawar following the monsoon session of the state assembly.

"There are 18 to 19 (NCP) MLAs who are in touch with us and Pawar saheb," Rohit, an NCP leader, said as quoted by NDTV.

Rohit says Sharad Pawar and NCP MLAs will take a call on whom to take back in the partyfold.

Earlier this month, Rohit had made a similar claim referring to alleged cracks in the ruling coalition.

In Maharashtra, which saw multiple "horse-trading" and alliance crumblings leading to political instability over the last few years, NDA suffered the jolt facing the upbeat INDIA, which won 30 out of 48 seats.

The NDA comprising the Eknath Shinde faction of Shiv Sena and Ajit Pawar's NCP could add only 17 seats.

After BJP suffered a drubbing in the state, Deputy Chief Minister and state leader, Devendra Fadnavis, offered to resign taking the blame for the loss.
