EC says Ajit Pawar faction is real NCP, Sharad Pawar loyalists say 'poll panel under pressure'

The EC settled the political feud between Sharad and Ajit Pawar, declaring the latter’s faction the 'real' Nationalist Congress Party.

Soon afer the decision, a war of words broke out between leaders from both the sides.

Sharad Pawar loyalist Jitendra Awhad accused Ajit Pawar of politically choking his uncle and called him a traitor.

Praful Patel from Ajit Pawar's faction said that the Election Commission's order vindicates their actions.

The Election Commission’s ruling on Tuesday ended months of speculation over the factional fight between Ajit Pawar and party founder and his uncle Sharad Pawar.

The Commission also allotted the NCP symbol 'wall clock' to the group led by Ajit Pawar.

The decision followed the laid-out tests of maintainability of such a petition which included tests of aims and objectives of party constitution, test of party constitution and tests of majority both organisational and legislative, the commission said.

“The test of majority in the legislative wing found favour in this circumstance of the case, where both groups have found to be working outside the party constitution and the organisational elections," the poll authority observed.
