Ajit Pawar apologises for ‘urination’ comments in House

Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Monday apologised for his controversial comments on water shortage and loadshedding saying that he had hurt the sentiments of the people as well as the Legislature.

Making a personal clarification after the lower House witnessed noisy scenes and two adjournments over his remarks, Pawar admitted that he should have used his words carefully.

‘My comments on Saturday were not directed towards drought affected people and I had no intentions to hurt anybody’s sentiments,’ he clarified.

Pawar, who is the state energy as well as finance minister, said the state government has accorded top priority to drought relief measures and the government stand has been made clear in this year’s budget provisions as well as debates in the Legislature.

The state government is committed to provide water, cattle fodder and waiver of students fees in drought affected areas.
