One has to see Maharastra to realise the power of Sharad Pawar. It is said that Pawar has a finger in every pie in Maharastra and that finger they claim is mostly dirty. There is no doubt that he rules the sugar belt and his writ runs in Baramati. Maharastra, as a State, has great potential, but corruption is sapping its energy and growth. Hopefully, Modi's presence in the campaign will queer the pitch for Pawar and Maharastra will be liberated. Even the recognised Modi baiter, Kumar Ketkar, in Rahul Kanwal's show last night, admitted that Modi has the capability to queer the pitch and people of Maharastra will vote for Modi and not for VJP per se. Rajdeep Sardesai in Headlines Today indicated a poll done by them that shows a huge percentage would vote for Modi and the voters would accept anyone from the BJP to be the CM and indicating of a CM before the polls was not material.
