Ajit Pawar-led NCP’s Official X Handle Suspended After Complaints by Sharad Pawar Group


GG News Bureau

Mumbai, 13th Sept. The official X (previously Twitter) handle of Ajit Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) group has been suspended, following complaints from leaders of the NCP’s Sharad Pawar faction.

The account on X represented Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar’s group, “NCP Speaks 1,” which was created to communicate key announcements, party and leader-related events.

X suspended ‘NCP Speaks 1’ following several complaints from leaders of the Sharad Pawar-led faction of the NCP who claimed the account was a copy of the original NCP Speaks account.

Ajit Pawar stated on Wednesday that the complaint was filed by leaders of his uncle Sharad Pawar’s NCP group for using the same name for their X handle.

Following his sudden exit from his uncle’s party in June of this year, Ajit Pawar’s side has been at odds with Sharad Pawar’s. On July 2, Ajit Pawar took oath as Maharashtra’s deputy chief minister, joining forces with the ruling BJP and the Shiv Sena (Shinde faction).

The development comes after Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde held an all-party meeting on the Maratha reservation on Monday and resolved to grant reservations to Marathas while accepting other demands of the protestors.

“In the meeting, we have decided to give reservations to Marathas. The government is of the view to give reservations to Maratha without touching the other (caste) reservations,” said CM Shinde

He further said, “The decision to give reservations to Marathas must be valid legally, and it must stand in law, so we are working on it… The government has accepted many of the protesters’ demands too.”

The meeting was called to address the Maratha community’s protests and hunger strikes. Manoj Jarange Patil, a Maratha Morcha coordinator, went on hunger strike in support of Maratha reservations. He is likely to end his strike now that the Maharashtra chief minister has agreed to the Maratha reservation demand.

Following extensive discussions with Martha community leaders, the state government reached an agreement. Jarange Patil has asked the state government to modify the ordinance regarding Maratha reservations.
