Mumbai 29 Sep 2019: Senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar, who resigned as MLA, said that allegations against Sharad Pawar pained him and that's why he decided to quit.
He explained the reason behind his shocking resignation in a press conference on Saturday. NCP chief Sharad Pawar's name was embroiled in the alleged Maharashtra State Co-operative Bank scam(MSC Bank scam).
Ajit Pawar has been named - along with his uncle and NCP President Sharad Pawar - by the Enforcement Directorate in the alleged Rs. 25,000-crore Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank Ltd. scam. Ajit Pawar represented Baramati assembly constituency.
Ajit Pawar, who resigned on Friday, questioned the allegations against Sharad Pawar in connection with the alleged Rs 25,000 crore scam at the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank. "Sharad Pawar is not even remotely associated with the bank or its transactions in any capacity. Yet, the day before yesterday, only Pawar saheb's name was doing rounds in connection with the case," Ajit Pawar said.
