Sharad and Ajit Pawar argue over who is the actual NCP

While the Ajit Pawar faction requested’ Sharad Pawar to step in,’ there were concurrent, clear tries to take over the party.
Ajit Pawar’s faction wants Sharad Pawar’s “blessings”. On Monday, July 3, when asked who the new national president of the party was, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar retorted, “Have you forgotten Sharad Pawar?”

While many are comparing the NCP’s split to the Shiv Sena’s split just a year ago, there is one significant distinction between the two. Ajit Pawar’s faction is still looking for Sharad Pawar’s “blessings,” while Eknath Shinde and his backers created an all-out assault on Uddhav Thackeray.

Both Factions attempt to take over the party

There were obvious opposite tries to take control of the party. After Ajit Pawar’s opponent, Sharad Pawar, spoke to the media to make it clear that “Ajit Pawar is not the party,” the latter did so hours later to announce new appointments to party positions, including Sunil Tatkare “replacing” Jayant Patil as the state party’s leader.

The conflicting factions made statements on various topics, including the party name and symbol, Jayant Patil’s authority, the disqualification process, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The challenges and the comments made by each side on them are listed below:

On Who is Actual NCP After Split

Sharad Pawar’s remark:
“Supriya Sule, my daughter, attended the meeting as well, but that doesn’t imply she broke any rules.
Ajit Pawar’s remark:
“The Election Commission has always had the final say in a party’s name and symbol whenever these issues arise. We are proceeding under the assumption that we are the party. The majority of MLAs support us.”

On Support of MLAs

Sharad Pawar’s remark:
“Every MLA we have is here, all of them. We haven’t made an effort to project any power. Strengths grow and diminish; I have experienced this before.”
Praful Patel’s remark:
“We don’t need to disclose the numbers because we are the party. Those who request figures should first specify the size of their support base.”

Regarding the disqualification process

Sharad Pawar’s remark:
“I’m not aware of any current proceedings, but if Jayant Patil has made a decision, it must be accurate.”
Ajit Pawar’s remark:
“We have observed letters and messages being sent to the Assembly Speaker and the Election Commission (EC) requesting the disqualification of specific leaders. Neither the party nor the EC has the authority to disqualify anyone. Only the Speaker has the power to begin proceedings, and it takes time.
