Defections have not worked in favour of those who left," he added.
Pawar further added, "That which is happening with Praful Patel has been happening for several years. For years attempts were made to link my name to Dawood Ibrahim. But these things serve no purpose, people don't believe these things. Life of Praful Patel is before everyone to see."
The NCP chief's nephew Ajit Pawar proved pollsters wrong and handsomely won family bastion Baramati.
