New Delhi: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar is likely to be re-elected as the chief for another term at a party convention in New Delhi on September 11.
The strategy for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and the opposition unity would dominate the agenda, the party’s student wing president Sonia Duhan said. The convention was for those who want to unite against divisive forces, she added.
“Pawar saheb is expected to give the mantra of unity and victory and for creating mass support for his call for nationalism,” said Dheeraj Sharma, the national president of NCP’s youth wing.
More than 10,000 NCP workers are expected at the convention to be held at Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium.
Though there has been talk of either his daughter Supriya Sule or nephew Ajit Pawar taking over, Pawar continues to helm the outfit.
The 81-year-old Maratha strongman, who was expelled from the Congress in 1998 after he opposed Sonia Gandhi’s entry into politics ostensibly over her foreign origins, founded the NCP in 1999 along with Tariq Anwar and PA Sangma.
While Anwar has gone back to the Congress, Sangma passed away in 2016.
Duhan said that it was for the first time that the national convention was being held in the Capital.
“Today, our country is standing at crossroads. On one side, there are people who want to fulfil their political interests by spreading hatred and dividing the nation on religion and caste lines. We will never allow them to succeed in their nefarious designs,” she added.
The party wanted to eradicate unemployment from the country, empower the weak, the underprivileged and women and help in the development of the nation.
Sharma said India had immense talent and the youth were just waiting for an opportunity. “But they have become the victims of rampant unemployment all over the country. They are wandering in search of jobs but in spite of having skills, they are not getting employment. We have to create jobs for them so that they can contribute to the progress of the nation,” he added.
