But fact is that Ajit Pawar and the MLAs supporting him have insulted Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Maharashtra". He further added, "Kal 9 baje tak ye mahashaye(Ajit Pawar) hamare saath baithe the, achanak se ghayab ho gaye baad mein, vo nazar se nazar mila kar baat nahi kar rahe the, us se hume shaq bhi hua tha ("Till 9 pm yesterday, this gentleman (Ajit Pawar) was very active during the talks. Suddenly he disappeared after that. We were suspicious when he was not talking to us by maintaining eye to eye contact)," said Sanjay Raut.
