Whatever Sharad Pawar has said would be looked into: Congress
New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday downplayed NCP chief Sharad Pawar`s dig at the style of functioning of Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, saying his complaint would be looked into.
"Pawar is a senior leader and whatever he has said would be looked into. Such a complaint is nothing something extraordinary," party spokesperson Meem Afzal told reporters here.
Pawar had yesterday alleged that important administrative business in the state was moving at a slow pace.
Without naming Chavan, who is heading the Congress-NCP coalition, Pawar said, "Of late it seems that the hands of those in the administration are suffering from tremors resulting in delayed clearance of files in the absence of signatures of approval."
Pawar who was speaking at a book release function, added, "I gather that for months together, important papers are kept pending in the state administration."
Striking a lighter note with reference to the pact of both the parties to fight next elections jointly, the NCP president quipped, "Since we (Congress-NCP) have to remain together, one has to keep mum."
