Maha oppn boycotts CM's tea party over Ajit Pawar's comeback

Press Trust of India  |  Nagpur 

"There's no point in having tea with tainted deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar who is facing serious allegations of corruption and who has been re-inducted into the Cabinet," Leaders of Opposition in state Assembly and Council Eknath Khadse and Vinod Tawde, respectively, told reporters after a joint meeting of opposition parties.

The meeting was attended by Shiv Sena leaders Subhash Desai, Ashish Jaiswal and Diwakar Raote, MNS leader Bala Nandgaonkar, PWP leader Meenakshi Patil, leaders Sudhir Mungattiwar, Girish Bapat and Devendra Phadanvis among others.

Senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar, against whom the allegations of corruptions were levelled in connection with approving the irrigation projects with cost overruns, had stepped down as deputy chief minister in September only to make a comeback recently.
