What did Ajit Pawar say?
Ajit Pawar, the Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly, has indicated that the elections will be held. Many activists are aspiring for both seats. Therefore, I doubt whether this by-election will be uncontested, said Ajit Pawar. Ajit Pawar was talking to reporters after a program at Vasantdada Sugar Institute in Pune.
We are going to take Uddhav Thackeray and his colleagues, Nana Patole of Congress, Ashok Chavan, Balasaheb Thorat, Jayant Patil of NCP and allied parties into confidence in Mumbai. The workers of Pimpri Chinchwad met yesterday and expressed their desire to fight the election. He will also meet Sharad Pawar. It is not yet known who will be the BJP candidate. However, after a meeting of the Jagtap family, there is an internal news that the name of Ashwini Jagtap, wife of late MLA Laxman Jagtap or Shankar Jagtap has been revealed. Some names of BJP are coming forward for Kasba Assembly. Ajit Pawar said that he is speaking based on the information received from different workers. Also, the husband of late Mukta Tilak is interested. Ajit Pawar said that BJP will take their decision, we don’t need to stick our nose in it.
Ajit Pawar said that our workers in both the cities want to contest the election in both places, so I am doubtful whether this by-election will be unopposed.
