Union minister Amit Shah had questioned Pawar's credentials at a public meeting at Solapur. NCP chief Sharad Pawar reacted to the same and said that he has never done anything wrong.
Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar on Tuesday criticized Union home minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah for questioning his credentials in a public meeting earlier this month.
"I have never done anything wrong. Those who have been in jail are asking me what I have done. The public knows what work I have done," Pawar said.
Earlier this month, Shah had questioned Pawar's credentials in a public meeting at Solapur. He took a dig at the Congress and NCP in Maharashtra over their party leaders joining the BJP in huge numbers ahead of the state election due later this year.
"If the BJP opens its door completely, except for Sharad Pawar and Prithviraj Chavan, there will be no one left in their parties," Shah had said.
Union home minister and BJP president Amit Shah on September 1 had questioned NCP president Sharad Pawar's "contribution" in providing financial aid to farmers in Maharashtra when he was a minister in the erstwhile UPA government at the Centre.
Shah was in the south Maharashtra city to attend a rally on the occasion of culmination of the second leg of the 'Mahajanadesh Yatra' launched on August 1 by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
"I appeal to Sharad Pawar to disclose the works… and the funds he had brought for Maharashtra when he was in power," Shah had said.
