As per the official press release shared by the party, Pawar would participate in party camps that will be held in Shirdi on November 4-5.

The statement further read, “NCP National President Sharad Pawar Saheb will be admitted to Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai for the next three days as his health is not good. According to the request made by the State General Secretary of the party Shivajirao Garje through an official letter, all office bearers and workers of the Nationalist Congress Party should not gather outside the hospital,” it further added.

Pawar was previously hospitalised on April 11 last year when he was scheduled to undergo gallbladder surgery the next day.

“Pakistan Zindabad” slogans were being raised during Rahul Gandhi led Bharat Jodo Yatra, claimed Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan on November 25. He also said that he has ordered a probe into the incident.

Earlier that day, BJP leaders alleged that partakers in the Yatra shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ in Khargone, Madhya Pradesh. A controversy flared up after BJP State President VD Sharma and other party leaders shared a video on social media claiming that ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans were raised during the rally.

Calling it a conspiracy by the BJP against Rahul Gandhi, Congress Party denied the claims. Yatra entered Madhya Pradesh on its 77th day of the Padyatra on November 23.

Covering a total distance of  3,570 km, Congress claimed that Bharat Jodo Yatra is the longest march on foot by any Indian politician in the history of India. It started from Kanyakumari on September 7, and will end in Kashmir next year.

In a recent interview, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal spoke on BJP’s corruption allegations on AAP. He said, ‘BJP accuses us of corruption, they have not found one paisa. They have filed 167 cases against AAP leaders over the last 7 years, out of which not one has been proved in court.’

There were protests by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) employees due to delayed salaries. Following which, BJP accused AAP for not releasing funds. To which Kejriwal replied, ‘In the last 5 years, we have given ₹one lac cr to Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).. ask them (BJP) where it is now? kha gaye saara’ He added, ‘Give me CBI and ED for 24 hours, and more than half of the BJP party will be in jail’

Kejriwal further stated, ‘Modi ji gives free ki revdi, I do that too. While he does it for the rich, I do it for the public. He is waiving off huge loan defaulters behind closed doors. I do it openly for the benefit of the people. Providing schools and hospitals to the public is not free ki revdi, these acts are called as punya in Hinduism.’

Rahul Gandhi with Sawarkar’s letter

In the Thane Nagar police station, Shiv Sena leader Vandana Dongre has filed a complaint against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi for allegedly making “derogatory remarks” against independence fighter VD Savarkar on Thursday, November 17 during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

A case of Non-Cognizable (NCR) Offense has been registered under section 500, 501 of IPC, an officer said on Friday.
“Rahul Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra made a statement defaming the freedom fighter Savarkar and due to this the sentiments of the local citizens have been hurt,” Dongre said.

“We will not tolerate the defamation of our great men in the soil of Maharashtra,” she added.

Rahul Gandhi, whose Bharat Jodo Yatra is currently travelling through Maharashtra, held a press conference at Wadegaon in the Akola district on Thursday. There he said, “Veer Savarkar, in a letter written to the British, said “Sir, I beg to remain your most obedient servant” and signed on it. Savarkar helped the British. He betrayed leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel by signing the letter out of fear.”

Gandhi had already spoken at a rally held as part of his yatra two days ago at Hingoli in Maharashtra on the occasion of ‘Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas’, referring to Savarkar as a representation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). “He served two to three years in prison in Andaman. He began drafting appeals for compassion, the Congress MP had stated.

Protest march was organised by Balasaheb’s Shiv Sena party in response to Rahul Gandhi’s comments in Thane district on November 17.

The late Nationalist ideologue’s grandson, Ranjit Savarkar also filed a complaint against Gandhi for allegedly insulting his grandfather on Thursday at the Shivaji Park police station in Mumbai.
