    Maharashtra’s Deputy Chief Minister, Ajit Pawar, spoke about the reasons behind his alliance with the BJP and Shiv Sena government led by Eknath Shinde. He said that in politics, alliances can change and there are no permanent enemies or friends. The purpose of their alliance is to address public challenges and develop the state. They are committed to protecting people of all castes and religions.

    Pawar also mentioned his dedication to farmers’ welfare. He previously worked on water-related issues as the Water Resources Minister. He directed the state agriculture minister to visit Delhi and discuss the onion situation with central leaders.

    Meanwhile, Maharashtra Congress Chief Nana Patole criticized the central government’s decision to raise the export duty on onions, calling it “anti-farmer.” Patole expressed concerns about the impact on farmers.
