NCP chief hits back at PM Modi for talking about Pawar family

NCP chief Sharad Pawar hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for claiming there were disputes in the former’s family.

Pawar said the insinuation was coming from a man who did not have any experience of a family, nor does he know where they are presently.

PM Modi, during a rally in Wardha on April 1, had said that Pawar was losing his grip on the Nationalist Congress Party which was hit by a “family feud”.

“Pawar’s grip on the party is loosening. The situation is that Pawar saheb’s nephew (Ajit Pawar) is trying to take control of the party. Because of this, the NCP faced problems in ticket distribution,” the PM had claimed at the rally.

Hitting back, Pawar said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his rally in Wardha said there are
disputesin the Pawar family. That Ajit Pawar has taken control of the family and that the Pawar family is no longer united.”

“I would like to tell him that we brothers were raised in a cultured atmosphere and our mother gave us virtues,” the NCP chief said.

He went on add that his brothers were all reputed in their own fields and said how great his mother was that her sons have got Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan.
