NCP support to UPA, Maha govt to continue: Sharad Pawar

September 26, 2012 18:42 IST

Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday reaffirmed his party's support to Congress at the Centre and in Maharashtra, where a crisis has erupted in the wake of Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar's resignation.

"We continue to support the government in Maharashtra and Delhi, we do not want destability," Pawar told reporters here.

Asked whether Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan should go back to Delhi, where he was earlier a powerful minister in the PMO, Pawar said, "Whether Chavan should be there (as chief minister of Maharashtra) in Mumbai or Delhi is the internal issue of Congress, it is a prerogative of Congress and we have no view."

Asked whether the resignation of Ajit Pawar, a senior NCP leader, was to create pressure on Congress, he said, "(There is) no question of pressure creating."
