Ajit Pawar’s remark improper, should be forgiven: NCP chief

Mumbai, April 13 (IANS) Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar Saturday said that Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s comments on drought-hit areas were “improper” and now that he has apologised, he should be forgiven.

“As the party president, I will say that Ajit Pawar’s statement was improper and unfortunate. He should have been more careful given the position that he is in. Now that he has apologised, he should be forgiven,” Pawar told reporter here.

Last week, Ajit Pawar shot his mouth off when he was asked to comment about protests in the drought-hit regions of Maharashtra.

“Who is that (Bhaisaheb) Deshmukh? What is the point of his protest? Will it yield water? When there is no water, where will I arrange water from? Should I urinate in the dams,” Ajit Pawar had asked.

The shocking remark triggered protests across the state.

Pawar offered an apology but the opposition refused to forgive him and demanded his resignation.
