Ncp Ministers: Ajit Pawar, other ministers from rebel NCP camp to meet Sharad Pawar again | India News

NEW DELHI: Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and other NCP ministers of his faction reached Mumbai’s YB Chavan Centre on Monday to meet the party’s president Sharad Pawar for the second consecutive day.
Sources said Ajit Pawar and his rebel ministers are desperately trying to convince the NCP supremo into joining the NDA.

On Sunday, the Ajit Pawar camp had an unscheduled meeting with senior Pawar at the centre.

This was the first meeting between Sharad and the group-led by Ajit Pawar after he rebelled against his uncle and joined the Eknath Shinde government on July 2.
Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel, who had accompanied Ajit on Sunday, said the leaders had met Sharad Pawar and urged him to keep the party united. “We came here without asking for any appointment. We requested Pawar sahib that the NCP should stay united. On this, Sharad Pawar did not give any reaction but he listened to us carefully,” Patel had told reporters after the meeting.
Hours after the meeting, the senior Pawar made it clear that he cannot support the BJP and will continue with his “progressive politics”.

During his address to youth wing workers from Nashik, the 82-year-old veteran politician reaffirmed the NCP’s ideology, emphasising their opposition to the “divisive politics of the BJP”. He urged the workers to stand firm on the principles of inclusivity, equality, secularism, and democracy.
Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis had tried to play down Sunday’s meeting, stating Sharad Pawar had led the party for 20 years and the meeting was “no big deal”.
