He expressed there could be no alternative to the NCP leader and that his leadership is crucial in the view of what Maharashtra is witnessing in the political arena.
“It was on anticipated lines… There’s no alternative to Pawar Saheb… The NCP committee’s decision is correct,” Raut told ANI soon after the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) ally’s turmoil-ridden party’s move.
