After the Enforcement Directorate (ED) named him and his nephew Ajit Pawar in a money laundering case, Pawar said that he has no problem if he has to go to jail.

Last month, the Mumbai Police had filed a case against Ajit Pawar and 70 others in the bank scam.  Scrutiny carried out by the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), and a charge sheet filed by a quasi-judicial enquiry commission under the Maharashtra Cooperative Societies (MCS) Act held Pawar and other accused, including several directors of the bank responsible for the loss. It stated that because of their decisions, actions and inactions, massive losses were incurred to the bank.

An audit report by NABARD revealed flagrant violations of several banking laws and RBI norms by the accused in the allotment of loans to sugar factories and spinning mills and the ensuing default on repayment and recovery of such loans. During that time, Ajit Pawar was the director of the bank.
