‘No need to mix two things’, says Jayant Patil on NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s meeting with Adani IG News

New Delhi: Clarifying on Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar’s meeting with Gautam Adani in Ahmedabad, NCP MLA Jayant Patil said that there is no need to mix two different things.

Patil said, “There is no need to object to it, it was just a project where Sharad Pawar went and inaugurated it. Sharad Pawar has always supported the decisions taken in the meetings of the INDIA alliance and hence there is no need to mix the two things.”

Patil said that there should be no controversy on this because inviting Gautam Adani and India Block are two different things. He also said that the NCP chief has known Adani for a long time and he has invited Sharad Pawar for the event.

Jayant Patil said, “All discussions of the INDIA alliance are done by all the leaders where Sharad Pawar is also present… And as far as the inauguration is concerned, Sharad Pawar knows him (Gautam Adani), and he had invited him. “This inauguration was a new investment.”

Sharad Pawar and Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani inaugurated the Lactoferrin Plant in Vasna, Ahmedabad on Saturday.
