“In the history of Maharashtra’s politics, leaders across party lines shared a cordial relationship and despite differences in political ideologies they respected each other and refrained from mud-slinging. Nowadays, leaders are making personal attacks and using foul language. On the occasion of Chavan’s anniversary, I request leaders to refrain from using abusive language against their leaders in the opposition,” he said.

While not naming any leader, Pawar said, “I urge even my party colleagues to refrain from making personal attacks”

Meanwhile, on seat sharing in the state, he said that there has not been any discussion with Union home minister Amit Shah on the issue, but will take decision based on the “electoral merit” of candidate.

“Currently, five state elections are underway. After these polls, there will be discussion on seat sharing,” he added.

Pawar reviewed the under-construction education commissionerate head office in Pune on Saturday.
