Politically incorrect-Sharad Pawar

Our politicians are known to stoop to any extent in order to retain their chair and power. But no body ever expected Sharad Pawar, a man of stature and status to stoop so low as to invite and support Padamsinh Patil, suspended from his party’s primary membership following his arrest in a murder case. Pawar openly supported Padamsinh and appealed to people to support him.

Earlier, Pawar had visited Bala Saheb to request him to allow Australian cricketers to play in Mumbai. It may have been Pawar’s political strategy, but it didn’t go well with Congress or with public at large. What is more, it is reported that Bala Saheb had gall enough to tell Pawar to send him a request letter and he would consider the matter as if Pawar was applying for some loan for Thackery’s consideration. Does Pawar accept that Mumbai is Bala Saheb’s fiefdom?

Pawar should know that he is failing. Once a man, nobody dared to cross whose path, today, he appears to be failing what with his moves, food price rising and other things.

What next? I won’t be surprised if tomorrow he asks Ajmal Kasab for support. After all, both Padamsinh and Kasab are charged with murders. Only difference being, the former has killed one person and the later has to account for several lives. But that should be no big deal with Pawar. After all, it is said that one should always have second line of action.
