Sharad Pawar to call it quits, won't fight 2014 Lok Sabha polls

New Delhi: NCP Chief and Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar is all set to hang his political boots. In an exclusive interview to CNN-IBN, the former Maharashtra chief minister said that he will not contest the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections.

Pawar further said that in 45 years of his political career he has not lost a single election, but it's time to make way for the younger lot to take over.

"I don't want to contest the next Lok Sabha elections. This year I complete 45 years - without single day's break - in politics. I have been working from 1967 till today and continuously I'm getting elected. It's my responsibility to encourage younger generation."
