SHARAD PAWAR asked party workers to adapt to the changing socio-political scenario and said that the vision and ideologies of social reformers like Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj, Jyotirao Phule and Dr B R Ambedkar continue to be the guiding light for the future. The NCP supremo addressed a function organised by the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) here to mark his 81st birthday.
Pawar said that the NCP may be a small party with a limited cadre, but its “uniqueness” is that its workers are committed to taking along all the deprived sections of society.
“If members of a section of the society feel they can’t lead a dignified life, we should facilitate that,” Pawar said addressing the party workers.
The NCP chief said the ideologies and philosophies of the three social reformers — Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj, Jyotirao Phule and Ambedkar — constituted his party’s backbone.
Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also wished Pawar on his birthday. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray sent a bouquet to Pawar to his residence, Silver Oak, in south Mumbai.
