Sharad Pawar: It is known that important developments have been taking place in Maharashtra politics for the past few days. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar has taken a sensational decision when politics has heated up with the transfer of power in the state. NCP president Sharad Pawar has dissolved all national level units and cells of his political party with immediate effect, party general secretary Praful Patel said on Wednesday. Prapul Patel posted this on Twitter. However.. Nationalist Mahila Congress, Nationalist Yuva Congress and Nationalist Student Congress have been excluded. It seems that this move was taken with the aim of reorganizing the structure of the NCP after the recent collapse of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government comprising Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP in Maharashtra.
Former Union Minister Praful Patel did not reveal the reasons behind this sudden decision in the party. Taking this decision within a few days of the fall of the Maha Vikas Aghadi Alliance government in Maharashtra has gained importance. NCP played a key role in Shiv Sena-led coalition government. Their government collapsed with the rebellion of Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde. Even after Shinde took charge as the Chief Minister, the political heat in the state has not yet subsided.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said on Monday that he has the support of 18 Shiv Sena MPs. Shinde, who reached Delhi to hold discussions regarding the OBCs in the state, expressed confidence that the Supreme Court will give a verdict in favor of his government on July 20. The Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned to August 1 the hearing of petitions filed by two factions of the Shiv Sena regarding the recent political crisis in Maharashtra and control of the Shiv Sena party. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition filed by the Uddhav Thackeray camp challenging the Maharashtra Assembly Speaker’s disqualification of MLAs. The Supreme Court will also hear a petition filed by the Eknath Shinde camp challenging the disqualification notices sent to them by the Maharashtra Deputy Speaker.
On the other hand, upheavals have started in UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet. Yogi Adityanath is facing opposition from his own ministers. Both ministers expressed their dissatisfaction and anger towards CM Yogi. While one of them submitted his resignation, the other went to Delhi to file a complaint with the BJP leadership, creating a sensation. Minister for Hydropower Dinesh Khatik resigned on Wednesday, alleging that he was not given priority because he was a Dalit. At the same time, he sent a resignation letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah and accused him of corruption.
