There are 80 BJP and five Shiv Sena corporators in the industrial city and apparently most of them have received a “personal call” from Ajit Pawar urging them to “extend help” to his son, BJP leaders told The Indian Express.
Sources close to Adhalrao told The Indian Express that the feat will be “impossible for a busy actor like Kolhe” who mostly lives in Mumbai. Adhalrao, they said, won thrice from the LS seat, each time maintaining a margin of at least two lakh votes. In 2014, he managed to get a margin of over three lakh votes.
Parth Pawar, son of NCP leader Ajit Pawar, attended his first major function in Pimpri-Chinchwad, which created quite a buzz in the industrial city, following speculation that he might be fielded from Maval Lok Sabha constituency.
Though it is not quite election time yet, Pawar has remained the “star campaigner” of the party, with the crowd waiting patiently for hours to listen to him. Small wonder then the party has already anointed him as the next chief minister.
