MUMBAI Nov 28: NCP leader Ajit Pawar, who shocked his party and family after joining hands with the BJP on Saturday and became deputy chief minister in the Devendra Fadnavis-led government, on Wednesday said what he did could not be termed a revolt.

He also reiterated that he continues to be with the NCP and would abide by whatever party chief Sharad Pawar says.

“It was not a revolt. I was the leader of NCP. Did NCP remove me? Did you read (about my removal from NCP) somewhere?” Ajit Pawar told reporters.

“I have been telling all that I was in the NCP, I am in NCP and will be in NCP,” he said.

Ajit Pawar resigned as Deputy CM citing personal reasons on Tuesday, following which Mr Fadnavis too stepped down as Chief Minister. – PTI
