I will not be a part of Maharashtra govt: Supriya Sule

Nashik: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP and daughter of Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, Supriya Sule, on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of being part of the Maharashtra government, which plunged into crisis after the resignation Ajit Pawar as the Deputy Chief Minister.

"I will not accept any responsibility in the Maharashtra government as I am working with the Centre," Sule told reporters in Nashik scotching speculations of her entry into the Maharashtra Cabinet after her cousin quit on Tuesday.

Sule, who was in Nashik to attend the 'Rashtravadi Congress Yuvati Melava', she said, "Ajit Dada followed his inner voice and quit...This is not staged...he has resigned from his post really."

Sule said she would not accept any responsibility in the Maharashtra government as she was working with the Centre.

She also said that there was absolutely no threat to the Congress-NCP government as assured by her father and NCP president Sharad Pawar.

When asked whether Ajit Pawar quit to mount pressure for a leadership change in the state, she said, "If our party wants any changes, we could have done it. We have no right to change leadership in other party (Congress). There is no miscommunication between the two parties."

As part of her tour after the formation of the Yuvati Congress, Sule has so far covered 24 Maharashtra districts tackling issues of dowry and education mainly.
