Ajit Pawar to be Maharashtra deputy chief minister again

Posted on Dec 06, 10:12PM | IANS

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar will rejoin the Maharashtra cabinet as deputy chief minister Friday, days after he got a clean chit in the alleged irrigation scam in the state.

Pawar will be sworn-in 9.30 a.m. Friday by Governor K. Sankaranarayanan, a top Raj Bhavan official told IANS.

Pawar, nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, had quit in a huff Sep 25 after his name cropped up in the alleged scam.
