Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar has tweeted that Ajit Pawar’s decision to support the BJP was his personal decision and not that of the NCP.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut told the media that Sharad Pawar has nothing to do with Ajit Pawar’s decision. “ Ajit Pawar has deceived Sharad Pawar” said Raut. He added that Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray and Sharad Pawar might address a joint press conference.  

Meanwhile, senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal reportedly said that Sharad Pawar was not aware of the developments.  According to reports, about 15-20 NCP MLAs are with Ajit Pawar.   

BJP leader and former Chief Minister  Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Maharashtra Chief Minister for a second term at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai on Saturday while Sharad Pawar’s nephew and the Nationalist Congress Party's Ajit Pawar was sworn in as his deputy.
