Ajit Pawar Completes His Maha Ambition; BJP Happy to Destroy MVA; What Will Happen With This New Set-Up?

<p>Ajit Pawar again took the oath as the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra in a ceremony as dramatic as that early morning in 2019, thereby dissolving the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and making the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) a “Maha Break Aghadi” in the process.</p>
<p>In the end, it turned out that all the rumors from the previous several months that Ajit was unhappy with the NCP and would leave if granted the CM or Deputy CM chair were accurate.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-53286″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-ajit-pawar-completes-his-maha-ambition-bjp-happy-to-destroy-mva-what-will-happen-with-this-new-set-up-download-2023-07-02t181600.493.jpg” alt=”” width=”987″ height=”739″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-ajit-pawar-completes-his-maha-ambition-bjp-happy-to-destroy-mva-what-will-happen-with-this-new-set-up-download-2023-07-02t181600.493.jpg 259w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-ajit-pawar-completes-his-maha-ambition-bjp-happy-to-destroy-mva-what-will-happen-with-this-new-set-up-download-2023-07-02t181600.493-150×112.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 987px) 100vw, 987px” /></p>
<p>Ajit Pawar’s discussions with the BJP were reportedly coming to a conclusion on dissolving the NCP, while NCP supremo Sharad Pawar and his daughter, Supriya Sule, who was just chosen national working president of the party, were away in Patna last week attempting a broad opposition front against the BJP.</p>
<p>According to sources, Ajit has spent the last week communicating frequently with the BJP-Shinde camp.</p>
<p>The last straw was Sharad Pawar’s refusal to name Ajit Pawar the NCP’s state president.</p>
<p>Ajit was ‘paid his due’ by the BJP, according to sources, as well. “The bulk of NCP MLAs were always on Ajit Pawar’s side. The same behavior was seen today, according to a senior BJP official who carefully monitors Maharashtra, News18.</p>
<p>Ajit has always been clear that although he intended to lead the NCP in Maharashtra, he had no desire to lead the country.</p>
<p>He felt that this was necessary since, unlike the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, the TMC in West Bengal, the BRS in Telanagana, the YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh, or the RJD in Bihar, the NCP had never been able to gain power on its own in Maharashtra as a regional actor.</p>
<p>PLANTS FOR IMPLOSION</p>
<p>Political analysts claim that on June 10, when Sharad Pawar designated his daughter Supriya Sule and senior party figure Praful Patel as the NCP’s working presidents, but made no mention of Ajit Pawar, who serves as the party’s Leader of the Opposition (LoP), the seeds of the Sunday collapse were planted.</p>
<p>Later this month, on the 25th anniversary of the NCP’s founding, Ajit answered that he wished to resign from the LoP position but that he was openly considering running for Jayant Patil’s position as NCP state chairman, which is now held by his rival and Sharad Pawar’s close assistant. But Sharad Pawar refrained from granting his nephew’s request.</p>
<p>Finally, it seems that this cost the seasoned politician dearly since the BJP sensed Ajit’s resentment and feeling of humiliation and offered him the position of Deputy Chief Minister in the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis administration, along with cabinet appointments for his supporters.</p>
<p>Ajit’s secret negotiations with the BJP-Shinde government since May eventually paid off on Sunday when he staged a takeover of the NCP.</p>
<p>Will the current tense situation in Maharashtra’s governing front survive, though? After the Shiv Sena split last year that resulted in the fall of the Uddhav Thackeray administration, the BJP seems content for the time being that it has essentially destroyed the Maha Vikas Aghadi.</p>
<p>This action is reportedly being taken in view of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, in which the BJP hopes to gain a significant amount of support from individuals like Eknath Shinde and Ajit Pawar in the 48 seats in Maharashtra.</p>
<p>Watch for Maharashtra politics’ next surprise!</p>
