November 15, 2004 17:57 IST

In the wake of some NCP ministers expressing dissatisfaction over allocation of portfolios, party president Sharad Pawar on Monday warned them to "either remain or leave".

Speaking to reporters after inaugurating a military school at suburban Andheri, he said, "There is no dissatisfaction among the NCP ministers over the allocation of portfolios, but if anyone is not happy then they are free to leave".

The NCP president hastened to add there was no unhappiness among the NCP ministers over the allocation of portfolios in the Mahrashtra government.

Former deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal had expressed dissatisfaction after getting the PWD ministry while he had sought rural development portfolio. Apparently, another former deputy chief minister Vijaysinh Mohite-Patil too was reportedly unhappy.
