On Monday, Sharad Pawar, chief of the Nationalist Congress Party (Sharadchandra Pawar faction), urged his party workers to prepare diligently for the Maharashtra assembly elections, scheduled for later this year. Addressing the 25th foundation day gathering, he confidently predicted that the state's power would be in their hands post-elections.

This call to action came just days after the NCP (SP) celebrated a significant victory, winning 8 out of the 10 Lok Sabha seats it contested in Maharashtra as part of the opposition alliance in the 2024 general polls. Pawar's address was marked by a ceremonial hoisting of the party flag, witnessed by his daughter and Baramati MP Supriya Sule, alongside other leaders and workers.

Pawar reminisced about the last 25 years, focusing on the spread of the party's ideology. He encouraged collective action towards the upcoming assembly elections, envisioning a future where his party holds substantial influence in the state. The NCP, formed by Pawar in 1999, experienced a split last year, leading to divergent factions and subsequent changes in party symbols by the Election Commission.
