NCP leader Sharad Pawar misusing his ‘seniority’ status.

Remarks against Sachin Tendulkar unwarranted
He shall apologise Sachin Tendulkar

Hyderabad: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar should remind that every citizen has right to express his or her views in the democracy and his remarks against most revered cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was ‘unwarranted’ as he expressed his opinion on the ongoing farmers’ protest over the three farm laws. He (Sachin) mentioned in the tweet that “all Indians must stay united during the phase and reckoned sovereignty of the country cannot be compromised.” “What wrong in it? Why shall the NCP leader react so harsh against these comments,” N V Subhash, Telangana BJP senior leader and grandson of former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao has questioned.

N V Subhash said Sharad Pawar made remarks against former Indian cricketer by misusing his ‘seniority’ status as a politician. When the debate was going on across social media platforms over the protests by farmers and many celebrities expressed their views on the issue. Is there any rule that comments only pro-protests shall be made in social media? The NCP leader lost control and advised Sachin Tendulkar asking him to refrain from speaking on such issues. Such a senior leader shouldn’t have suppressed comments by celebrities, he added.

The BJP leader said Sharad Pawan should withdraw his comments and apologize to Sachin Tendulkar as he should realize that seniority comes from maintaining dignity, not criticizing people those who expressed their views against his wish and stand. Sachin Tendulkar was not only a learned cricketer but also a social activist and he has every right to react on the social issues. Sharad Pawar should stop advising people and instead he could introspect about the farm laws and its benefits to the farming community without thinking on the political lines, he said.
