Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar.
The Election Commission is going to hear again on Monday the petition of Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar’s group regarding the claims of the name and election symbol of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Who will be the boss of NCP and who will have the right on the clock election symbol? The hearing will start again from November 20. Earlier, in the hearing held on November 2, Abhishek Manu Singhvi had appeared on behalf of NCP President Sharad Pawar’s faction. Ajit Pawar and Sharad Pawar faction had made different claims during the hearing.
Now the hearing will start again from Monday. For that, Sharad Pawar and Supriya Sule will go to Delhi. There is also a possibility of a meeting of Sharad Pawar faction in Delhi. Let us tell you that the whole controversy started when Ajit Pawar joined the BJP led government, after which Ajit Pawar had filed a petition in the Election Commission, staking his claim on NCP.
Uncle Sharad Pawar had strongly opposed the Election Commission’s claim of nephew Ajit Pawar. Let us tell you that the Election Commission had issued a show cause notice to the Sharad Pawar faction because the petition was filed on behalf of the Ajit Pawar faction.
In this petition and claim, it was said that Ajit Pawar should be made the President of NCP and his party should be given the election symbol under the provisions of the Election Symbols Order, 1968.
Know what happened in the hearing on November 2
A hearing took place before the Election Commission on 2 November. Abhishek Manu Singhvi debated for two hours. In this he made many serious allegations against Ajit Pawar group. While arguing, he alleged that a false affidavit has been filed by the Ajit Pawar group.
He had alleged that affidavits had been given in the names of dead persons. Singhvi also claimed to have filed affidavits of minor children. He argued that Ajit Pawar has no support.
Meanwhile, the Ajit Pawar faction demanded that the hearing should be held continuously. Therefore, there is a possibility that the continuous hearing will start from November 20. MP Sunil Tatkare had said that we will bring some technical issues before the Commission in the hearing.
Sharad and Supriya visit Delhi
NCP President Sharad Pawar himself is going to Delhi due to the hearing in the Election Commission. Supriya Sule will also be present along with Sharad Pawar during the hearing. Both NCP leaders will go to Delhi in the morning. There is also a possibility that Sharad Pawar faction will meet in Delhi before the hearing. The strategy is likely to be decided in that meeting.
However, Sharad Pawar group says that any decision should be taken. The people of the state know what has happened and that efforts are being made to take over their party, but despite that they will win again in the next elections.
