New Delhi: Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, after meeting senior party members, in Pune, announced that he would not be contesting the Lok Sabha election from Madha in Maharashtra. He said he was making way for his grandnephew, Parth Pawar, to fight the poll. His decision came after discussing the issue within the family, on Monday.

The NCP leader said, “After holding talks with family, we were of the opinion that next generation members should be given a chance. There is demand from various party leaders and workers for Parth Pawar’s candidature from Maval.”

According to Pawar, this was the right time to take decision to not contest since he already contested 14 times in the past. He revealed last month that besides him, his daughter Supriya Sule would also contest the Lok Sabha election. Parth Pawar, the son of Sharad Pawar’s nephew Ajit, is the second family member contesting the election.
