Senior politician and National Congress leader Sharad Pawar expressed worry for the newly formed Ministry of Cooperation and farmers’ challenges during a 50-minute meeting. The leader of the National Congress party met PM Modi on Saturday.
The Prime Minister’s Office tweeted, “Rajya Sabha MP Shri Sharad Pawar met PM Narendra Modi,” alongside a photograph of the two leaders meeting. Mr Pawar, who had requested a gathering with PM Modi, was given one for this morning.
Mr. Pawar, 80, met with PM Modi on Saturday and wrote him a letter expressing his worries about the Ministry of Cooperation. He claimed that cooperative banking could be a state-run enterprise. “This meeting was long overdue,” NCP leader and Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik said. “A politician from Maharashtra meeting the Prime Minister has nothing to try to do with anything. We wish the PM to think about all proposals from the industry.”
A day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet reshuffle, the Rajya Sabha member commented on the new Ministry of Cooperation. He claimed that the Maharashtra assembly had written regulations for the cooperative sector. The center had no power to poke into legislation drafted by the state.
Following this, the probabilities of a political uprising in Maharashtra have increased. Before the Monsoon Session of Parliament, newly-appointed Rajya Sabha leader and Union Minister Piyush Goyal met with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, National Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, and senior Congress politician Anand Sharma, per governing body.
While the defence minister briefed Pawar, a former defence minister, on the Sino-Indian border dispute, Goyal met with him as part of the government’s outreach to opposition leaders before the session.
Sharad Pawar, leader of the National Congress party is known for his political savvy nature. The architect of the Maharashtra Maha Vikas Aghadi administration. He is the lynchpin for any potential opposition coalition against the BJP.
