Sharad Pawar failed to create NCP successor: Saamna editorial | News from India

MUMBAI: The Shiv Sena (UBT) on Monday said in an editorial in its spokesman Saamna that PCN Chief Sharad Pawar was certainly a great leader nationwide, but though his word was respected in national politics, he had failed to create a successor to carry his party forward.
Saamna said that Sharad Pawar “is the NCP and is like the mythical banyan tree in politics”. Pawar broke away from the original Congress party and formed, led and supported an independent party called the NCP, he noted. But after Sharad Pawar, the leadership that can carry the party forward cannot be created in the NCP, she stressed.
“So as soon as he (Pawar) announced his retirement four days ago, the party shook from the ground up and everyone started thinking what would happen to them now, shaken by this concern. Party activists took to the streets. Top party leaders protested and Pawar withdrew his resignation respecting his public sentiments. From now on, he will lead the NCP. Then the curtain fell on the drama that has been unfolding for the past four to five days,” Saamna said.
The paper also criticized the BJP, saying, “Sharad Pawar’s resignation was a ‘expedient’, the BJP said. The BJP is a party with a stomach ache. They never want others to be good or better. This party resisted by breaking up parties or other people’s houses. Secondly, before accusing others of “shrewdness”, they should look at their prime minister Modi, who is famous as the world’s greatest dodgeman. Those who “cheat” the country’s politics will think other people’s business is expedient. The bellyache of BJP is that they had a “plan” to break NCPs like the Shiv Sena. The people were ready with their bags and the arrangements for the “accommodation-boarding” of the arrivals were said to have been completed. However, with Sharad Pawar’s move, the BJP’s “plan” went into the bin and their stomach aches increased. One group insisted that Pawar take the NCP to the BJP tent and free his colleagues from ED, CBI and tax harassment. Pawar refused to do this.
