"Since Pawar was good friend of mine, and as a courtesy I went to see him. It was a friendly gesture," he said, adding it should not be linked with politics.

Shekhawat said he had completely retired from active politics after assuming the present post and no political motive should be attributed to his visits to Rajasthan.

Pawar, who underwent a surgery on his jaw last month, returned from London on Friday where he had gone for a medical checkup.
