NCP president Sharad Pawar visited Belagavi after a gap of 32 years and took part in various functions including the MES convention held at CpEd ground on Saturday.
Pawar said that the voters must be united and if there are more MES MLA’s that would strengthen the case of Belagavi’s merger with Maharashtra in the Supreme Court.Earlier at the airport he hinted towards the formation of the Third front which could drive nation to glory.
Pawar in his usual style also pinched the MES leaders and the groupism and dissidence is not good for the Marathi voters. If all you stand together then only it can have an impact and more MLAs could get elected, he said. He added every vote of Marathi person in border area should go to MES candidate, which is fighting for the rights of Marathi people
He added he has not hatred for Kannada or Karnataka, infact Karnataka is like my brother. But we expect the same respect from the other side. Kishan Rao Yellurkar, Ram Apte and Krishna Menase were felicitated by Sharad Pawar for their contribution.
