Former Maharashtra deputy chief minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) member Ajit Pawar said that he would quit politics if anyone in the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) accused him of corruption. Speaking at an event organised by the PCMC Education Board, Pawar said, “There are many people in Pimpri-Chinchwad who got their first break from the NCP. We empowered them. Some of them quit the party and have changed the colour too. However, be it a corporator or a chairman of standing finance committee or a mayor. Even if one of them says that they gave Ajit Pawar something in return, I will quit active politics.” The NCP has been ruling the PCMC for the last 10 years.

He criticised leaders of opposition parties. “Since we are heading towards a civic election, many of them claim that there’s a lack of development in the PCMC. Do you shut your eyes when you go around? The entire country is honouring Pimpri-Chinchwad for the development it has seen in the last ten years,” said Pawar.
