  • As per my last update, Parth Ajit Pawar has been seen participating in various political activities, programs and campaigns organized by NCP.
  • His political activities are mainly focused on the state of Maharashtra, where the Pawar family has played an important role in politics for many decades.

  • In 1999, as part of the Congress–NCP coalition government, he became the Cabinet Minister responsible for the Irrigation Department.
  • He was also given the Rural Development portfolio as part of Sushil Kumar Shinde’s cabinet in 2003.
  • After the victory of the Congress-NCP alliance in the 2004 assembly elections, he retained the Water Resources ministry in the cabinets of Deshmukh and later Ashok Chavan.
  • On 23 November 2019, Pawar broke ties with the NCP and was sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
  • He handed over a paper bearing signatures of NCP MLAs to the Governor to prove the government’s majority; However, the government fell in less than 80 hours with then Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis resigning.
  • He later returned to the NCP and on 1 December 2019, it was announced that he would take over as the Deputy CM for the Maha Vikas Aghadi government after the start of the winter session of the state legislature on 16 December.


There are allegations that as Water Resources Minister, he left no stone unturned in helping in the development of Lavasa, with the project being promoted as “Sharad Pawar’s vision”. Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation (MKVDC) leased 141.15 hectares (348.8 acres) of land to Lavasa in August 2002, which included part of the Warsgaon Dam reservoir. The lease between MKVDC and Lavasa was executed at rates well below the market rate.

He told the Election Commission of India in 2004 that at that time he had financial assets worth more than Rs 3 crore. In September 2012, allegations were made that Rs 70,000 crore had been embezzled. These allegations were made by Maharashtrian bureaucrat Vijay Pandhare, and anti-corruption activist Anjali Damania demanded Pawar’s resignation from the ministerial post. However, the allegations were not proven and Ajit was reinstated as the Deputy CM of Maharashtra.

On 7 April 2013, Pawar’s statement in a speech in Indapur sparked controversy due to its perceived insensitivity. In response to a 55-day fast by activists protesting the inability of the Maharashtra government to provide water during the drought, he asked whether they should “urinate in the dam” to make up for the water shortage. Following a public outcry against his statement, he publicly apologized, saying that the comment was “the biggest mistake of [his] life”.
