Biggest mistake of my life: Ajit Pawar
Mumbai: Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, whose recent statement on April 6 stirred a hornet's nest said here on Monday that his crass remark was one of his biggest mistakes in his political life. "I feel that my statement a couple of days ago is one of the biggest mistakes in my political life. I apologise for it and request the people to forgive me," Pawar told reporters.
Earlier in the day, he apologised to the legislature and to the people of the state, by issuing a clarification on the floor of both houses. Ajit's uncle and NCP chief Sharad Pawar also apologised for his remarks saying they were "unwanted" while the BJP state unit demanded his resignation.
Ajit's crass humour at a public meeting on Saturday had the opposition up in arms against him in the legislative assembly and council, forcing him to issue a personal clarification apologising for his remarks.
