Ajit Pawar remained absent from industrialists meet, NCP leadership upset

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had organised a meeting with the industry ‘captains’ of the country. The main objective of the meeting was to bring investment in the state and create jobs. 

In the meeting, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar remained absent. The reports claim that Pawar was not invited by CM Uddhav Thackeray. 

As this happened, it was learned that the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar has expressed disappointment over the same. 

The meeting was organised between the Maharashtra government and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at the Sahyadri Guest House. 

The meeting was attended by top industrialists including Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Uday Kotak, Anand Mahindra, Adi Godrej, Harsh Goenka, Mansi Kirloskar, Rajesh Shah, Anand Piramal, Ashok Hiduja, Niranjan Hiranandani, Varun Beri and others.

Along with Chief Minister Thackeray, Maharashtra Environment Minister Aditya Thackeray and Transport Minister Anil Parab. 

Now that the state finance minister Ajit Pawar was not invited in such an important meeting, the NCP was knocked out, why could not he be called in this meeting, but it is being said from the NCP that, Ajit Pawar kept himself away from this meeting.

The absence of Deputy CM Ajit Pawar in the meeting has made NCP leadership upset. However, the reason for Ajit Pawar’s absence is unknown. 

In order to keep this lowkey, the NCP has made a statement saying that Ajit Pawar himself didn’t go to the meeting.
