The Sharad Pawar faction is likely to conclude its arguments before the Election Commission on Monday in the NCP name and symbol war following which the Ajit Pawar group will present its rejoinder before the poll panel.
During Wednesday's hearing and earlier too, the Sharad Pawar camp questioned before the Election Commission the very premise of dispute in the NCP, claiming those who were part of conducting organisational polls in the party in 2018 cannot claim in 2023 that those elections were flawed.
On Monday, the Sharad Pawar faction is likely to conclude its arguments before the EC. Then, the camp of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar will present its rejoinder (reply to Sharad Pawar camp's arguments) before the EC.
