In a surprising turn of events, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has announced a crucial meeting scheduled for July 5, 2023, to discuss the recent developments following Ajit Pawar’s move.

Ajit Pawar’s decision to join hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2019 had sent shockwaves through Maharashtra’s political landscape, leading to a brief political crisis.

Now, as the dust settles, the NCP is poised to evaluate the impact of Pawar’s move and chart a new course for the party.

Background: Ajit Pawar’s Move

Ajit Pawar, a prominent leader of the Nationalist Congress Party and nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, stunned the political arena in Maharashtra by aligning with the BJP in November 2019.

This move came shortly after the state assembly elections, where the NCP had formed an alliance with the Shiv Sena and the Indian National Congress.

However, the political drama was short-lived, as the alliance between Ajit Pawar and the BJP fell apart within 80 hours, primarily due to legal challenges and internal party pressures.

Ultimately, Uddhav Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena, took oath as the Chief Minister with the support of the NCP and Congress, forming the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra.
