During a press conference following the ceremony, Ajit Pawar affirmed that the NCP would contest the upcoming elections independently, under its own name and symbol. He expressed gratitude for the support received within the party and emphasized their commitment to the progress and welfare of Maharashtra. Ajit Pawar reassured the public that they were prepared to explore all necessary avenues to achieve these goals.

Response from Sharad Pawar: Reacting to the recent events, Sharad Pawar stated that such situations were not new to him and requested the public to exercise patience until the situation became clearer. Regarding Ajit Pawar’s comments about a potential alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Sharad Pawar clarified that while it might be Ajit Pawar’s inclination, it did not align with the principles of the party.

Significance of Ajit Pawar and NCP MLAs Taking Oath: The oath-taking ceremony of Ajit Pawar and other NCP leaders holds immense significance, symbolizing a transformative phase in Maharashtra’s political landscape. Over the past few years, the state has witnessed multiple such ceremonies at the prestigious Raj Bhavan. With the upcoming elections for the 288-member state assembly scheduled for next year, this development sets the stage for a dynamic and intriguing political environment.

The recent political developments, including the rebellion against the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government under Shinde’s leadership, have brought Ajit Pawar and his supporters back into the political forefront. While the Congress party has criticized these events as an “assault on democracy,” the BJP has raised concerns about corruption allegations against the NCP. Amidst this political turmoil, the Nationalist Congress Party remains aligned with Sharad Pawar, and their future course of action will significantly influence Maharashtra’s political trajectory. The swearing-in of Ajit Pawar and other NCP MLAs marks a significant milestone in the state’s political journey.
