Mumbai: The Maratha warlord and the NCP chief asserted that his party and the coalition partner of the Maha-Vikas-Aghadi, the Congress are fully backing the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray in the state’s battle against coronavirus.
Talking to a private TV news chancel, the NCP chief said that the government formed by the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress – in November last year – will absolutely complete its five-year run. He exuded confidence that a similar political situation will prevail in Maharashtra if the three parties contest the next Assembly election together.
On prevailing COVID-19 situation in the state capital, Mumbai, Pawar said that it was true that the situation in Mumbai was bad initially but now things have improved, including Dharavi. The situation in the entire state is improving on a daily basis, he further claimed.
The ruling constituents of the Maha-Vikas-Aghadiare working together in the battle against COVID-19 in Maharashtra and there is not an iota of difference, he said and added, “All three parties are working under the leadership of Uddhav Thackeray. Congress and NCP fully support his leadership and action.”
Dismissing the allegations that he is remote-controlling the Maha-Vikas-Aghadi government, Maratha leader said that he is not remotely controlling the Maharashtra government. “It is fully controlled by Uddhav Thackeray. I am not in the decision-making process, but I contribute in other areas like the cyclone relief recently,” he clarified.
