Ahmednagar, August 14
Two days after NCP chief Sharad Pawar censured his grandnephew Parth Pawar for looking for a CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s loss of life, Parth’s cousin Rohit on Friday termed the episode as a “family matter”.
While Parth is the son of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, Rohit, MLA from Karjat-Jamkhed, is son of Rajendra Pawar, one other nephew of the NCP president.
“It is a family matter. Saheb (Sharad Pawar) has made comments on it, it is a family matter,” Rohit Pawar advised reporters in Ahmednagar, refusing to say something extra.
Sharad Pawar had mentioned on Wednesday that he gave no significance to Parth’s demand for a CBI probe.
Rohit, nevertheless, spoke about “politicisation” of Rajput’s alleged suicide towards the backdrop of coming elections in Bihar, the actor’s dwelling state.
“Today, news came that a Maharashtra BJP leader will oversee the BJP’s election preparations in Bihar,” he mentioned, apparently referring to Devendra Fadnavis.
“The BJP had been raising the issue (Rajput’s death). The issue was being politicised from the beginning and now there is clarity (about why it was politicised),” the NCP MLA mentioned. PTI
