The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar was in Satara on Sunday where he took dig at former party MP Udayanraje Bhosale. Bhosale, a descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji, recently resigned as the NCP MP and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Addressing party workers, Pawar said that Satara is seat of Shivaji’s dynasty, which taught Maharashtra about pride and courage.“However, there are some who chose to change the party. In a democracy, everyone has the right to chose wherever he wants to go,” Pawar said, without naming Bhosale. It was Pawar’s first visit to Satara after Bhosale shifted his loyalty.
