Mumbai, Apr 1 IBNS | 7 months ago

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Tuesday retorted back to Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray's claim that he blocked the NCP chief's entry into the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and called it the "joke of the year".


"I can say it's a joke of the year," Pawar told NDTV channel.

"I knew intimately late Balasaheb Thackeray. He was a mature person. I feel sorry that the person, who has taken the responsibility of running an organisation set up by Balasaheb Thackeray, his level of thinking is this... making irresponsible statements. That's the reason that his organisation, day by day, is going down," he said.

This comes after Uddhav Thackeray earlier made a remark that he stopped Pawar from entering into any alliance with the NDA.

"Pawar was open to discussing both pre-poll and post-poll alliance with the NDA. But not just me, BJP's Gopinath Munde and other Maharashtra leaders strongly opposed it," he told the channel.
