He was addressing his first campaign rally in Tuljapur.
According to a report published in DNA, Chavan accused Sharad Pawar's party of being hand-in-glove with the BJP which eventually led to the President's rule in Maharashtra.
He said, "NCP broke the alliance with Congress for the post of Chief Minister. They have always been thinking of personal benefits."
"NCP is giving secret support to BJP and the Modi Government is ruling Maharashtra State from Delhi," alleged Chavan.
He also held NCP responsible for snapping their 15-year-old tie-up. Chavan said, "The very birth of NCP was out of the ambition of its leadership to become the Prime Minister in 1999, and in 2014, they broke the alliance again for the ambition of its State leader for the post of the Chief Minister."
