    No untouchability in politics, says Pawar

    [​IMG]

    NCP chief and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, speaking at a programme organised by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari's Purti Group here on Saturday, said "there should be no untouchability in social and political spheres of life".

    It assumes significance in view of Pawar's recent face-off with ally Congress on the issue of the ordinance on convicted MPs and his party's tussle with the Congress in the state.

    Though NCP officially played it down as a "non-political" programme, insiders feel Pawar's second attendance this year at Gadkari's programme, that too despite BJP leaders Gopinath Munde and Devendra Fadnavis recent ridicule of Ajit Pawar as Maharashtra's Lalu Prasad who would be sent to jail, is a political message to the Congress.

    Addressing the gathering, Pawar said, "Journalists asked me why I was attending Gadkari's programme. I feel there should be no untouchability in social work and politics."

    He said in lighter vein, "But elections are round the corner and we won't fall short of words in taking on the political rivals." Gadkari praised Pawar as someone who stood solidly behind constructive works.

    Modi's rallies may have drawn hue crowds, but it is not an indication of votes, since many would be there because they are curious and some would be there for just joining in the tamasha.

    However when seasoned politicians take steps that are curious, then one has to sit up and wonder.

    Politicians are genetically great survivors and they can read the tea leaves and sniff the air to know if a storm brews, just like animals can do.

    Therefore, what does the tea leaves foresee?

    Conspiracy Theory : Could be that Gadkari and Pawar probably have reached an understanding ? The kind gossip mongers say Advani and some Italians had.

    NCP is worried about A-320 deal, B737 deal, B777 deal and sale of Delhi and Mumbai airport and also the seats which they sold to Emirates airline. They do not want them to be investigated. So now they are open to BJP shud BJP forms the next govt.

    elections are still after a year. If he is serious, Congi Lapdog CBI will act fast and will have NCP leaders behind bars in no time.

    He is a wily fox, with little scruples..

    Pawar broke away from the Congress to form a coalition government with the Janata Party in 1978.

    He will make peace with the Devil if there is a political need for him, so is the legend in Maharastra.

    Sonia gandhi has come closest to the untouchability level if ever there was one. It's one huge track record what she has managed if you remember who she is and where congress was after Rajiv gandhi assassinated. In all pawar wasn't able to harm her and she has made him know his position. Unless it was a understanding not to to harm her (sympathy).
