Pune: NYT representative’s visit to Baramati underlines Sharad Pawar’s importance: Sule

Pune: NCP (SP) MP and MVA candidate from the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, Supriya Sule, underlined the importance of her father and NCP (SP) President Sharad Pawar in Indian politics.

She pointed out that American newspaper ‘The New York Times’ (NYT) representative covering the Baramati Lok Sabha election is proof enough of Sharad Pawar’s clout in national politics. She said that his far and wide influence on state politics is visible in this election.

She made these remarks on Saturday while campaigning at Malegaon Khurd village. She sought blessings of village deity Yamai Devi and interacted with villagers. Former deputy sarpanch Pradip Navale, NCP (SP) Youth Wing’s Rajendra Kate, Ashok Taware, Pallavi Kate, Pournima Pawar, Ashok Jagtap, Amol Konde, Rajendra Pathak Deshmukh and other office-bearers and workers were present in a large number.

Sule said, “The Baramatikars have stood behind Sharad Pawar through thick and thin. My fight is not against any individual but against the wrong policies of the Central Government. It is a matter of pride that girls who have studied in the Vidya Pratishthan, Baramati, are working in IT companies. Who is behind this development? Who established the Vidya Prathishthan? I need not answer these questions. I was among the three MPs across the country who were honoured for their excellent performance in Parliament. It is not my honour but that of the Baramatikars. I got it because you provided me with an opportunity.”

Criticising the Centre, she said, “Farmers are not getting good rates for milk, onion, sugarcane, cotton. Therefore, I raised these issues in Parliament. However, they suspended me. My grandmother and mother have taught me to be brave and not to cry. In that spirit, I will continue to fight against inflation, corruption and unemployment.”
