Sharad Pawar
Mumbai, March 18: Amid the speculations over alliance between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and National Congress Party (NCP) in Maharashtra, anther speculation surfaced over Sharad Pawar ahead of the Lok Sabha election.

After Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar's latest warning to Medical education Minister and NCP leader from Nandurbar, Vijaykumar Gavit, many started asking -- will Sharad Pawar too will receive similar kind of warning from the party as his daughter too praised BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar's daughter and politician Supriya Sule on Monday backs BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in an interview with Aaj Tak Tv channel.

"No one can be considered guilty unless proven by law", said Sule when asked about Modi's alleged involvement in Godhra riots in 2002. The union minister too had praised the Gujarat chief minister, however, later he refused to stick to his statement. He also asserted that he was misquoted by media.

Ajit Pawar on Monday threatened Gavit of expulsion from the ministry and party if his daughter gets the BJP ticket from the tribal constituency from North Maharashtra.

"If Gavit gets his daughter to contest the Lok Sabha election as a candidate of a communal party like BJP, I will write to the Chief Minister to expel him from the ministry and he will also cease to be in the NCP," Pawar told reporters.

Now, ahead of the Lok Sabha election, which is scheduled to begin on April 7, it seems that Sharad Pawar and his daughter's statement may create problem for NCP in Maharashtra.
