Decision to step down was taken for party’s future: Sharad Pawar

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar on Thursday told his party cadres that his decision to step down from the post was taken for the future of the party and to create a new leadership.

I should have discussed my plans with all of you and taken you into confidence

Speaking outside the YB Chavan Centre in the city, where his supporters have been camping to demand his continuation as the party chief, Pawar assured them that he would take a final decision in the next couple of days and that the sentiments of party workers will not be ignored.

“I respect your sentiments. I should have discussed my plans with all of you and taken you into confidence. But I know you wouldn’t have allowed me to take the decision (of stepping down as party chief),” the former Union minister told his supporters.

The veteran Maharashtra politician said some party colleagues from outside Maharashtra will meet him on Friday to discuss the issue. “I will take a final decision in one or two days,” he said.

As emotions ran high among his supporters, Pawar tried to pacify them outside the YB Chavan Centre. The party cadres gathered at the place urged Pawar to appoint a working president of the party, while he himself should continue in the post.
