Mumbai | 4 October 2023 : The tug-of-war between BJP and Ajitdada group over the post of Guardian Minister of Pune has finally stopped. Chandrakant Patil has been removed from the post of Guardian Minister of Pune. Ajit Pawar has been given the post of Guardian Minister of Pune. Ajitdada is expected to become the guardian minister of Pune in the run-up to the municipal, assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
The cabinet was expanded after the NCP led by Ajit Pawar joined the state government. The swearing-in ceremony of the new ministers took place. However, still the Guardian Minister was not appointed.

Chandrakant Patil was given the post of guardian minister. However, Ajit Pawar insisted on the post of guardian minister of Pune. He was saying that we should be given the post of guardian minister.
NCP is strong in Pune. Pune Municipal Elections have started. Therefore, Ajit Pawar is trying to maintain the municipality. Ajit Pawar had demanded that the post of guardian minister of Pune should be given to him so that the party would get good success in the Pune assembly elections.
Ajitdada groups have seven guardian ministerships
