Azam Pansare Joins Sharad Pawar Faction in NCP, Shakes Up Pimpri Chinchwad Politics

Pimpri Chinchwad's Political Landscape Sees Azam Pansare Join Sharad Pawar's

Pimpri | October 08, 2023: In a remarkable twist of events, Azambhai Pansare, a prominent political figure in Pimpri Chinchwad, has decided to align himself with the faction led by NCP President Sharad Pawar. This move carries significant implications for the ongoing power struggle within the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Azam Pansare, formerly a staunch supporter of the NCP in Pimpri Chinchwad, paid a visit to Sharad Pawar at his Pune residence, signaling a major realignment in his political loyalties. Pansare had previously been known as a close associate of Ajit Pawar and played a pivotal role in the NCP’s rise to power in the region. However, he had later switched allegiances to join the BJP.

The decision by Azam Pansare to return to the fold of Sharad Pawar has sent shockwaves through the political landscape of Pimpri Chinchwad. This development comes at a critical juncture when the NCP is grappling with a split, leading to the emergence of two factions—one led by Sharad Pawar and the other by Ajit Pawar. Sharad Pawar has been making concerted efforts to rejuvenate and fortify the NCP, with a particular focus on Pimpri Chinchwad, which has traditionally been a stronghold.

Significantly, leaders like Laxman Jagtap and Azam Pansare, who had played instrumental roles in strengthening the NCP’s presence in Pimpri Chinchwad, had previously crossed over to the BJP. Subsequently, the NCP had suffered a substantial setback in the region.

However, Sharad Pawar’s sustained efforts to reconnect with grassroots activists and garner support have started to bear fruit. Many veteran leaders have rallied behind Sharad Pawar’s leadership. Azam Pansare, in particular, commands a substantial following in Pimpri Chinchwad, with his influence extending to a significant section of Pansare corporators and office bearers in the area.

It is worth noting that after Devendra Fadnavis came to power, several NCP veterans, including Mahesh Landge and Laxman Jagtap, had crossed over to the BJP. Azam Pansare’s return to the NCP fold is expected to have a cascading effect on the local political dynamics. Accompanied by Pimpri Chinchwad city president Tushar Kamthe from the Sharad Pawar faction, Azam Pansare confirmed his decision to realign with Sharad Pawar after a discussion with the veteran leader.

Azam Pansare’s return to the NCP not only marks a significant shift in the power dynamics of Pimpri Chinchwad but also underscores the enduring influence of Sharad Pawar as he relentlessly works to fortify his party’s position in the region.
