New Delhi: People sitting leisurely on Sunday suddenly saw big news from Maharashtra. The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), leader of the opposition and Sharad Pawar’s nephew Ajit Pawar called a meeting of party leaders and shortly afterwards rebelled and joined the Shinde government. He was made the Deputy Chief Minister in the Government of Maharashtra. While 8 MLAs of NCP have been made ministers. It is being said that 40 out of 53 NCP MLAs have come with Ajit.
The danger of snatching the party and symbol from Sharad Pawar
In this way, NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s party is left with only 13 MLAs. However, so far this is only a ‘claim’. The position of the rebel MLAs will become clear in the next few days. However, this whole development has created big problems for Sharad Pawar. There is a danger of snatching the party and its symbol from them. Just like what Eknath Shinde did with Uddhav Thackeray. Now the future of NCP hinges on the magic figure of ’36’ between Ajit Pawar and Sharad Pawar. The same figure of 36 which is used for ‘Ranjish’ or ‘Enmity’, but in Maharashtra politics this same figure of 36 can now make a big difference for NCP. Let’s know the complete equation…
There is no less threat on Ajit Pawar
The situation is not clear on the total number of NCP MLAs who went with Ajit Pawar. If there are 40 MLAs with Ajit, the NCP will officially break. Ajit may get both the party name and the symbol, but if not, he may be disqualified along with the rebel NCP MLAs. Please inform that NCP has 53 MLAs in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. Ajit Pawar needs to cross the two-thirds majority mark for the party. This figure fits 36. If the figure of 36 MLAs is crossed, then the danger of snatching both the party and the election symbol from the hands of NCP Chief Sharad Pawar will increase. Ajit Pawar can now prove this figure of 36 either in front of the Governor or in the Assembly.

May have to face anti-defection law
After the political developments, former Maharashtra CM and Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said- NCP had 53 MLAs with Ajit Pawar. If 36-37 MLAs go with Ajit, then they can avoid being disqualified under the Tenth Schedule of Defection Law, but if Ajit has less than 35 left then disqualification is certain. What happened to Shiv Sena can happen to Ajit Pawar. Chavan further said- Sharad Pawar has said that the signatures of his MLAs were taken on false pretenses. Those who cheated were made leaders by Pawar Saheb, they are holding the hem of BJP due to the fear of ED. It is actually the ED faction, but the public is with Pawar Saheb. We had a premonition that an attempt would be made to break the group.
