Sharad Pawar’s big bet on Maharashtra assembly elections, made this claim about seat sharing with Congress, Shiv Sena (UBT)

Ahead of the assembly elections in Maharashtra, NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar said that Congress, Shiv Sena (Uttar Pradesh) and his party will contest the elections together. He also said that the seat sharing will start soon. The state is scheduled to hold assembly elections in October. Addressing a press conference in Pune, the NCP chief said that since Arjuna’s target (in the epic Mahabharata) was one eye (of a fish), our eyes are set on the elections in Maharashtra. Congress, NCP (SP) and Uddhav Thackeray’s Sena (Uttar Pradesh) will contest the assembly elections jointly. He said that talks on seat sharing in the state have not started yet but will start soon.

Focusing on the unity of entire opposition parties in the fight against the Mahayuti, Pawar said it is the moral responsibility of the major opposition parties in Maharashtra to protect the interests of smaller allies who were part of the alliance in the state assembly elections. But like these three parties, the Left parties, Peasants and Workers Party (PWP) were also part of the alliance but we could not give them seats in the Lok Sabha. It is our moral responsibility to protect the interests of these parties.

Sharad Pawar on Maharashtra budget

Responding to a question on the state budget presented by CM Eknath Shinde on Friday, Pawar said, “What happens if you go to the market with empty pockets? It is a matter of a few days, the reality will be seen soon.” It should be mentioned here that the NCP (SP), Congress and Shiv Sena (Shiv Sena) are constituents of the opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), which was in power in Maharashtra from November 2019 to June 2022 before the fall of Uddhav. Earlier, Pawar had said that the alliance has no single face but a collective face for the assembly elections, which many are considering as a setback for Uddhav Thackeray.
