Sharad Pawar clarifies his statement on voting twice, says was misinterpreted

Mumbai, Mar. 23: Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Sunday clarified his statement on voting twice in the upcoming elections and said that his statement was misinterpreted.

“I wasn’t addressing any public or election meeting. My statement was misinterpreted,” said Pawar.

Pawar asked workers of his party the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to take advantage of the multi-phase polling in Maharashtra by voting twice – first at their hometowns and then at places of work.

“Last time (in 2009), the polling in Satara and Mumbai was on the same day and people went to their hometowns. But this time, polling in Satara is on April 17 and here on April 24,” said Pawar, while addressing a gathering of head loaders in Maharashtra. (ANI)
