Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar Saturday shared stage with MP Padamsinh Patil, whom the party had suspended from primary membership last year following his arrest in a murder case.

The MP was present in his capacity as local people's representative at the meeting of NCP workers in his constituency Osmanabad, party spokesperson Madan Bafna said.

In his speech, Pawar told Patil's son and former state minister Rana Jagjitsingh, not to lose heart over his defeat in the October Assembly poll.

The NCP disciplinary action committee decided to suspend the Lok Sabha member from Osamanabad in Maharashtra from the primary membership in June last year after he was arrested in a double murder case.

The development had come three days after the arrest of Patil by CBI in connection with the murder of Congress leader Pawanraje Nimbalkar and his driver in 2006.
