Despite Ajit’s clarification, unease in Pawar family, Ajit-Raut verbal war continues

There has been a flurry of activity in the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) parties. Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut—who is considered close to NCP chief Sharad Pawar— demanded a response from Ajit on whether the BJP was attempting to break opposition parties. The BJP rushed to Ajit’s defence, saying that the MVA was maligning his image.

On Tuesday, Ajit slammed Raut for the article without naming him. “Spokespersons from other parties are speaking as if they are from the NCP,” he said. “I will raise the issue in the party meeting. They can speak about their own party. We don’t need advocates from other parties.” (HT PHOTO)
