Mitkari said at the time that Ajit Pawar would be the chief minister in the future. Currently, an offer is made by a group in the state. Be the chairman of this group, get a Mercedes, get two lakh rupees a month, get two crores in cash, Mitkari said, commenting on the ongoing political horse bargain and strongly criticized the Shinde government.
Some MPs joined the Shinde faction alleging that former deputy chief minister and then finance minister Ajit Pawar was not providing funds to MPs. A BJP MP should say that the funds have not been disbursed. Over 380 crore was given to MP Shahaji Patil who said ‘What a bush.. What a mountain.. What I hate..’ However, it was alleged that the entire funds were diverted to Baramati without giving funds to MPs. In making this disclosure, Mitkari targeted those who alleged the funds had not been disbursed.
