Status read, 'Party and family split', and was put up soon after BJP turned tables on rivals with faction of NCP breaking away under Ajit.
Mumbai: Hours after BJP's Devendra Fadnavis took oath as Chief Minister in the early hours of Saturday, with Ajit Pawar as his deputy, Sharad Pawar's daughter Supriya Sule had put up a WhatsApp status that pointed at a major rift within the Pawar family and the NCP.
The status read, “Party and family split”, and was put up soon after the BJP turned tables on rivals with a faction of NCP breaking away under Ajit Pawar — Sule’s cousin and Sharad Pawar's nephew.
In another status that followed soon after, she wrote: “Who do you trust in life...never felt so cheated in my life... defended him, loved him...look what I get in return."
The development brought a major twist in the Maharashtra political scenario as a day earlier it was senior Pawar who had announced that the new Maharashtra government would be led by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.
