Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, the chief architect of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, said that the three-party alliance including Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress will complete its five-year term. 

Assuring that Congress and NCP are fully supportive of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Pawar expressed that the coalition will remain in the state If the three parties contest the next assembly polls in Maharashtra together. 

While talking to a TV channel, the NCP chief said that the MVA government was working together in the fight against COVID-19 in Maharashtra. Pawar rejected the speculations that he wasn’t “remote controlling” the state government and said there was no difference among the alliance partners as they are working together. 

“Congress and NCP supports the actions taken by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his leadership. There is no difference among the parties as all are working under the leadership of Thackeray. The MVA government is fully controlled by Thackeray,” Pawar asserted. 

However, Pawar said that he was not part of the final decision-making process but handles other activities. “I like to visit if there’s a crisis like Cyclone Nisarga and give confidence to people,” he added. 

Speaking on the COVID-19 situation in Maharashtra, Pawar said that the situation was improving in areas including Mumbai. He said that the COVID-19 outbreak in Dharavi and other slums were the cause of major concern but the situation has improved there. 

Admitting that there were a few difference of opinion over easing of lockdown, Pawar said that the claim I partly true but not fully. The NCP chief said that even he was not in favour of opening things in the Mumbai, Thane and Pune region but was suggesting to reopen slowly in rest of the state.
