Amid the brewing tension in Maharashtra's Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), party leader Ajit Pawar on Thursday said he will take a leaf out of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray's book while dealing with his uncle, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar.
Notably, the MNS chief parted ways with his uncle, Shiv Sena founder late Bal Thackeray, in 2006 to start his own outfit.
Ajit Pawar's cryptic response came after Raj Thackeray's 'advise' to him in an interview where the later said Ajit Pawar should pay his uncle Sharad Pawar the same kind of attention he pays outside.
The interview was conducted by Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and NCP MP Amol Kolhe.
Asked by reporters here about the remark, Ajit Pawar said, "The way Raj Thackeray paid attention to his own uncle, I will also pay attention to my uncle."
