Jitendra Awad said that politics at such a low level should not happen in Maharashtra, houses will be destroyed, even if a case of murder is filed against me, but the crime of molestation is unacceptable to me. In this press conference, a video of the related case was shown by NCP.
My daughter will be asked by her friends, has your dad molested somebody. Politics has gone to such a low level, I have been walking with Saheb for 35 years, but I have not seen such dirty politics, it is better not to stay in such politics. Jitendra got emotional while saying that my status in the society has gone down.
After stopping the show of the movie Har Har Mahadev, a case was filed for obstructing the means of livelihood. Awad said that we were kept in lockup, we are not sorry for it, we are not apologetic.
On the other hand, Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar showed his readiness to contest this assembly seat only after the resignation of Awhad. But NCP state president Jayant Patil replied to Shelar.
Shelar had said that “Awhad offered to resign from MLA. It has nothing to do with the crime registered against him, Awhad should fight from the legal side. We will fight where he resigned”.
Jayant Patil said that even if Ashish Shelar and his party come, Jeetendra will win Awadh without even campaigning on that seat, his statement has no meaning. Jayant Patal explained that they should fight their problems, what is the point of resigning, this is what I have come to advise, Shelar and our advice is not different, I am persuading the distressed Ahwadas not to resign.
