‘Everything Can’t be Made Public’: Shah on Meet With Sharad Pawar
Reports say Home Minister Amit Shah and NCP leader Sharad Pawar met in Ahmedabad amid power tussle in Maharashtra.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday, 28 March declined to confirm or deny his purported meeting with NCP supremo Sharad Pawar.
"Everything cannot be made public," he said to a question on the meeting during a press conference at his residence.
Gujarati media had reported that Shah met Pawar and senior Nationalist Congress Party leader and former Union Minister Praful Patel in Ahmedabad.
His comment left everyone guessing even as reports about the meeting had triggered speculations amid the political crisis in Maharashtra in wake of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh's serious charges against state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, of the NCP.
The reports of the meeting also come at a time when the Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana came down with heavy criticism on Deshmukh calling him ‘an accidental home minister.’
The Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra includes the NCP and the Congress.
