Mumbai, 15th July 2021: Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole, in a statement on Wednesday, said that Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar is the remote control of the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in the state. Patole has been wanting to fight the next election alone, this statement has made it clear that it is difficult for the state’s Maha Vikas Aghadi to run till the completion of its term.

Patole made these remarks while talking to a regional news channel. The NCP is the second largest constituent of the MVA after the Shiv Sena. Congress is the third participant in the MVA.

When asked, why he was not invited to Pawar’s residence on Tuesday when a group of state Congress leaders met the NCP chief, Patole said, “This meeting was for the state government and its coordination. It was not a party-level meeting. He (Pawar) is the remote control of this MVA government.”

Earlier in the day, Patole made a veiled attack on the NCP in the context of the 2014 assembly elections, saying that his party was cheated seven years ago and now it is preparing for the 2024 general elections, apparently referring to the NCP’s move to contest the 2014 assembly elections in Maharashtra by splitting from the Congress.
