Pawar vs Pawar: Ajit gains ground in Arunachal Pradesh while Sharad secures victory in Maharashtra | Updates on Lok Sabha Elections

The recent political landscape in Maharashtra has been marked by significant turmoil and power struggles, particularly within the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) led by the Pawar family. Ajit Pawar’s faction of the NCP demonstrated considerable gains in the Arunachal Pradesh assembly elections, securing three out of the 14 contested seats. This victory was a notable achievement for Ajit Pawar’s faction, considering the party’s split in July 2023.

In contrast, the Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra saw Sharad Pawar’s faction of the NCP outperforming, securing eight out of the ten seats they contested. Notable victories included Supriya Sule winning the Baramati seat and key wins in constituencies like Dindori, Bhiwandi, and Wardha. The results highlighted the strong influence and support Sharad Pawar continues to hold in Maharashtra politics.

The political feud within the Pawar family has been an ongoing saga, with Ajit Pawar’s rebellion leading to a split in the NCP. Ajit Pawar joined forces with the Shiv Sena-BJP government in Maharashtra, leading to a series of dismissals and reappointments within the NCP faction. The Election Commission officially recognized Ajit Pawar’s faction as the legitimate NCP, granting them the party’s ‘clock’ symbol.

The recent electoral results in Maharashtra underscore the ongoing power struggle and influence of the Pawar family in state politics. While Ajit Pawar’s faction has shown significant gains in regional elections, Sharad Pawar’s faction continues to maintain a stronghold in national elections, particularly in Maharashtra.

In conclusion, the Pawar family’s political saga highlights the intricacies and complexities of power dynamics within the NCP. While both factions have demonstrated strength in different elections, the influence and support garnered by each faction will continue to shape the political landscape of Maharashtra in the coming years.
