Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and a seasoned politician from Maharashtra, planned to resign from his position two days ago, but an 18-member committee he constituted on Friday rejected his decision.
Sharad Pawar formed the 18-person committee to elect the new national leader of the party. After rejecting his resignation, the NCP panel members met Sharad Pawar at his home in Silver Oak.
Sharad Pawar should continue to serve as the NCP’s president, according to a resolution that party spokespersons handed to Praful Patel. “We can make working presidents, but Sharad Pawar should be president,” they declared.
“We reject his resignation with unanimity. He said that the party wanted him to remain president.
“Right now, the nation, the party, and the state need you. The cornerstone of this celebration is you. You are regarded as a recognised national leader. After the meeting, senior NCP leader Praful Patel said, “Your influence is felt throughout the state.
Who will lead the NCP moving forward is yet to be decided by the NCP committee.
