NCP President Shri Sharad Pawar He recently met various organizations of the Brahmin community in Pune and held discussions.Due to this, the politics of the state is in turmoil at present.
Once again to the ballot box Gonjaranya's work has been started by Mr. Pawar.
Pawar's role in the press conference.
NCP President Sharad Pawar has clarified his role in a press conference after a meeting with Brahmin organizations in Pune. A man named Dave called me and asked for an appointment. After this, Sharad Pawar informed that he had organized this meeting. Pawar also said that he had instructed the NCP leaders not to make statements against any caste or religion.
Sharad Pawar said, "A man named Dave asked me for an appointment. I also wanted to meet other organizations. Accordingly, I asked the NCP district president to arrange a visit. A total of 40 people were present at the meeting. He made some points to me. They had a discomfort. That uneasiness was about the statements made by some of my party colleagues. After making this statement, we had a discussion in the party. We said that no one should speak against any caste or religion. We informed about this in the meeting. "
"After so many years, Brahmins are remembered," said Sharad Pawar in response to Fadnavis' remarks.
"Reservation formula will not work for Brahmin community"
The second demand of the Brahmin organizations was that this class from rural areas is coming to urban areas. So they want more job opportunities. We had gathered information from the center and the state. It shows that their number in jobs is more than their population. Therefore, I said that the formula of reservation will not fit in this place, "informed Sharad Pawar.
"Some say no to reservation"
"Some said they didn't want reservations. However, I said that reservation should be given to the backward elements. I also said that we should not oppose reservation. There are corporations in our state to help different communities. He also demanded the formation of Parashuram Mahamandal for the Brahmin community. I said that the question belongs to the state government. He also promised to take the time of the Chief Minister and arrange a meeting between him and him, "said Pawar.
"I can do nothing more than make the party leaders understand."
Speaking on the demand to take action against the party leaders who made statements about the Brahmin community, Sharad Pawar said, "I have given understanding to the party leaders. There is nothing more that I can do. I don't think the atmosphere in the state has deteriorated. However, some sections may be upset by the statements made by the responsible leaders of the responsible party. In that case, the experts should discuss and reduce the discomfort. "
"For the first time, I was asked to visit a Brahmin organization. Therefore, I have convened this meeting to understand what he is saying, "said Pawar
For some time now, pro-Hindu organizations have been spreading aggressive propaganda that Sharad Pawar is anti-Brahmin. MNS chief Raj Thackeray also repeatedly accused Sharad Pawar of creating communal rift in Maharashtra and taking a stand against Brahmins in the last few meetings. As a result, on social media, many people from the Brahmin community go to the lower level and criticize Pawar, write hateful texts and this is the picture that led to the Ketki Chitale case. With all this in mind, the NCP has taken the initiative to communicate directly with Brahmin organizations on the perception that Sharad Pawar is anti-Brahmin.
Statement that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's guru was not Samarth Ramdasswami, Dadoji Konddev's argument for removal of sculpture in Lal Mahal, desecration of Ram Ganesh Gadkari statue, Sharad Pawar awarded flower turban before 2019 elections instead of Puneri turban. Also, when the BJP sent Chhatrapati Sambhaji Raje to the Rajya Sabha, the then Chief Minister was Devendra Fadnavis. Even at that time, there was resentment in the Brahmin community. Brahmin organizations had objected to Pawar's role in the anti-Brahmin image of the Sambhaji Brigade. Recently, NCP MLA Amol Mitkari and Minister Chhagan Bhujbal had made controversial statements about Brahmins. As a result, Brahmin organizations took an aggressive stance and staged agitation outside the NCP office. Due to this, allegations were leveled between the NCP and the Brahmin organizations.
Senior historian Babasaheb Purandare has also been criticized by Pawar's party and related organizations in the last few years. They use the Brahmin community for political gain. Political parties work with every element of the society. Currently, the political climate in the state is somewhat polluted.
Due to all these pre-history, Pawar-Brahmin discord has been created and now it seems that Sharad Pawar himself has taken initiative to remove it.

The growing racial divide in the state
And being accused of being anti-Brahmin
NCP on the background of being
Though a meeting of Brahmin organizations was held on Saturday 21st May in the presence of Congress president and senior leader Sharad Pawar, there was curiosity about the meeting as the Brahmin Federation refused the invitation.
NCP's alliance with Sambhaji Brigade opposing Shivshahir Babasaheb Purandare, Pawar's award for Phule turban in 2019 by opposing Puneri turban, now Sharad Pawar's involvement with anti-Brahmin politics due to various incidents such as imitation of priests by NCP MLA Amol MitkariRelationships are being formed and this is the picture that has created this discord.That is why with the Brahmins to close this gap in the state
It seems that Sharad Pawar has taken the initiative for direct communication
Let us see what exactly Mr. Thackeray said.
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's Gudipadva Melava was held on Shivteertha on Saturday. After two years, it was seen that Raj Thackeray's cannon was fired at this time. On this occasion, Raj Thackeray directly attacked Shiv Sena chief and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and NCP president Sharad Pawar.
Casteism flourished in the state only after the birth of NCP. The NCP was born in 1999. After that caste politics started in Maharashtra, in such words Raj Thackeray strongly criticized Sharad Pawar. Raj Thackeray made serious allegations against Sharad Pawar on the issue of casteism. 'Casteism flourished in the state only after the birth of the Nationalist Congress. The NCP was born in 1999. After that caste politics started in Maharashtra. If this is not the case. But at that time the caste was proud. The Nationalist Congress Party was born in 1999. After that he was made to hate another caste ', Raj Thackeray has directly accused.
Direct attack on Sharad Pawar over casteism
Raj Thackeray said that he will speak on Hindutva. What is Hindutva from my point of view? Will go to Ayodhya or not. No longer telling the date. There are Hindus and Muslims in Hindu-Muslim riots. He is Indian on January 26 and August 15. If China invades, we don't know who we are. Then when there is no Hindu or Indian, it becomes Marathi, Tamil, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi. Then at that time we were Marathi. After becoming Marathi then he becomes Maratha, he becomes gardener, he becomes Brahmin, Agari. Some people want this thing. Why do some people want this thing? Sharad Pawar wants this. The NCP was born in 1999. After that caste politics started in Maharashtra. If this is not the case. But at that time the caste was proud. The Nationalist Congress Party was born in 1999. He was then made to hate another caste. I used to show the lure of Maratha reservation by splitting. Babasaheb Purandare was soft targeted. Don't read history. Who wrote it, Purandare Brahmin. Okay .. I mean, he must have written something wrong. We don't read history. The Chhatrapati Shivaji who said to be one for Swarajya. There is a dispute over caste. Politics is on. If you don't come out of caste, when will you become a Hindu? Raj also asked this question.
