Is Sharad Pawar no longer powerful in Maharashtra?

NCP chief Sharad Pawar played a pivotal role in the Lok Sabha elections 2019, he was the guy who got every Opposition leader together. But the strong mandate to Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dented the Maratha strongman’s dreams.
The NCP’s performance in the 2019 elections poses a lot of questions for the NCP leadership. The party was expecting to win at least 9-11 seats. In spite of contesting more seats against the weaker Shiv Sena, it came a cropper due to the latter’s alliance with the BJP. In Maharashtra, the NCP, which contested 21 seats out of 48 in alliance with the Congress and have won 5 seats only. Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule retained Baramati, the family seat, with a margin of 1.54 lakh votes, but his grandnephew Parth lost from Maval in western Maharashtra. NCP chief did not contest but was expected to play a strong role in case the opposition performed well.
The 75-year-old NCP chief held more than 60 rallies in Maharashtra to canvas for alliance candidates. Pawar’s moves would be closely watched now, especially since the BJP has been poaching his party members. The NCP, however, seems to be winning more seats than the Congress like last time and that could mean the Congress.
