The confusion in Maharashtra political drama refuses to die down as in yet another twist in Maharashtra politics, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar has issued a statement stating NCP will not form an alliance with the BJP.
Minutes after his nephew Ajit Pawar took to Twitter to assure everyone of BJP-NCP alliance for a stable government in Maharashtra, Sharad Pawar took to Twitter and accused newly inducted Maharashtra Deputy CM of misleading everyone.
There is no question of forming an alliance with @BJP4Maharashtra.
NCP has unanimously decided to ally with @ShivSena & @INCMaharashtra to form the government. Shri Ajit Pawar’s statement is false and misleading in order to create confusion and false perception among the people.

He said that in order to create confusion among Ajit was saying saying that NCP will support the BJP. Sharad Pawar also assured that NCP has unanimously decided to ally with Shiv Sena and Congress to form the government.
Sharad Pawar’s statement comes after his nephew Ajit Pawar had thanked Prime Minister Modi to thank him for congratulating him on taking oath as deputy chief minister of Maharashtra.
Taking to the Twitter, the newly inducted Deputy CM of Maharashtra had also ensured a stable government “which will work hard for the welfare of the people of Maharashtra”. Pawar even tweeted his thanks to Home Minister and BJP President Amit Shah for his wishes. Pawar also thanked other BJP leaders for extending wishes on his being made the deputy chief minister.
In a dramatic move on Saturday, the BJP staked claim to form the government with the support of NCP’s Ajit Pawar and some other independent MLAs, thereby ending the President’s Rule. Fadnavis and Pawar took oath as chief minister and deputy chief minister of Maharashtra respectively early morning on Saturday. This happened within hours of Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray being announced the CM candidate for Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance in Maharashtra.
Following the dramatic turn of events, the Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress moved the Supreme Court questioning the legitimacy of forming the government. The SC today asked the Centre and State to give relevant documents about forming the government.
