And post the same meet of the NCP party held in Mumbai, one got to see the power of Pawar as arch rivals State Minister Ganesh Naik and MLC Manda Mhatre left the NCP Bhavan in Mumbai for an event in Navi Mumbai in the Minister’s car. Seeing arch rivals State Minister Ganesh Naik and MLC Manda Mhatre on the same stage is a rare occasion in Navi Mumbai. So both Ganesh Naik and Manda traveling in the same vehicle is out of question. Call it the power of Sharad Pawar to pull the strings on his party people that this happened. After meet their Chief Sharad Pawar, Ganesh Naik and Manda Mhatre were seen leaving the NCP Bhavan in Ganesh Naik’s vehicle. We captured the duo leaving the NCP Bhavan in Mumbai together and arriving at the CIDCO Exhibition Grounds at Vashi an hour later for the CIDCO Navi Mumbai Festival. And this is not the first time Sharad Pawar called it truce between Ganesh Naik and Manda Mhatre. It may be recalled, that even during the last Belapur Lok Sabha by-elections, it was Sharad Pawar who brought Ganesh Naik and Manda Mhatre on the same dais campaign for the party candidate and Ganesh Naik’s son Sanjeev Naik. While that attempt had failed, it will be an curious wait and watch whether after this time’s attempt, Ganesh Naik and Manda Mhatre called it a day from rivalry. Bureau report – NMTV News.
