Ashok Chavan joining BJP not surprising: Sharad Pawar-led NCP

NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar) spokesperson Clyde Crasto said Chavan is another example of those individuals, who when they are the lens, the BJP puts pressure on them.”They succumb to it and then eventually join the party,” he said alluding to the Adarsh scam which cost Chavan his chief ministerial berth in 2010.Chavan is an accused in the Adarsh housing society scam wherein a 31-storey posh building in south Mumbai was constructed allegedly on land owned by the Defence Ministry without getting the requisite permissions and clearances. “It (Chavan joining the BJP) is not a surprise,” Crasto said.”There are certain leaders, who have the power and capacity to fight the BJP, are actually giving up and succumbing to their pressures,” Crasto added.
