Sharad Pawar the 4-time chief minister of Maharashtra steps down

Maharastra: Against the backdrop of speculation about his nephew, senior Nationalist Congress Party leader Ajit Pawar, moving closer to the BJP, Sharad Pawar announced on May 2 that he was resigning as the party’s president and would not be running in future elections. During the launch of the second edition of his political memoirs in Mumbai on Monday, former Union Minister and four-time Maharashtra Chief Minister, Sharad Pawar, announced a significant move. He stated that he would step down as President of the Nationalist Congress Party, citing a need to take a step back after a long period of public life spanning over six decades. While he intends to continue his public life by focusing on issues related to education, agriculture, cooperation, sports, culture, and other areas, he will not be taking any official responsibility. During his remaining three years in Rajya Sabha, he will pay attention to matters concerning Maharashtra.

Mr. Pawar emphasized that his retirement as President did not mean his retirement from public life. He plans to continue attending public events and meetings to serve the people, as usual. A committee comprising senior members, including Supriya Sule, Ajit Pawar, Jayant Patil, Chhagan Bhujbal, Praful Patel, and others, will be formed to decide the party’s next chief. The panel will continue working towards the growth of the party organization and spreading its ideology and goals to the people.

Upon hearing the announcement, party members urged him to reconsider his decision, and he assured them that he would continue to be available to them, as always. He stated that he would work tirelessly round the clock to solve people’s problems and would always be there for the public until his last breath.
