Sharad Pawar and Controversies –

Sharad Pawar also has close links with the underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim through his henchman Lakhan Singh based in the Middle East.
- No Proof Above is just controversy

G.R. Khairnar made a series of accusations against Pawar for being involved in corruption but he failed to produce to proof.'

After 12th Lok Sabha was dissolved and elections to 13th Lok Sabha were due, Pawar, P.A. Sangma and Tariq Anwar demanded that the Congress Party needs Indian born person and not born foreigner. They opposed the Sonia Gandhi.
But today whoever opposed the Sonia Gandhi is working with her and accepted her as chief of Indian Politics business.

In October 2006, the prime accused in the stamp paper scam worth US$ 500 Million plus, Abdul Karim Telgi, named Sharad Pawar as one of the politicians involved. This was revealed in a leaked video-tape of Telgi's narco-anlysis test - now in the possession of the media - conducted in 2003, before the CBI took over the probe in 2004. In this tape, he named Sharad Pawar and Chaggan Bhujbal but did not specify the nature of their involvement.

2007 - The BJP asked for Pawar's resignation after alleging he was involved in a multi-crore scam involving wheat imports.

On October 27, 2007, the Bombay High Court served notices to institutions headed by Sharad Pawar, Ajit Pawar and Sadanand Sule (Sharad Pawar's son-in-law) along with a corresponding notice served to the Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation (MKVDC) on why special privileges were given to Pawar and his family. This was done in consideration of a Public Interest Litigation No. 148 of 2006, filed by Shamsunder Potare alleging that the land said allocations in Pune, made in 2002, were illegal. The institutions and properties mentioned include:

(i)Two 141.15 acre plots given allotted to Vidya Pratishthan, an educational society headed by Sharad Pawar
(ii)A 2 acre plot allotted to Anant Smriti Pratishthan, headed by Ajit Pawar, the Maharashtra state minister for irrigation and Sharad Pawar's nephew
(iii)A 13 hectare (=32.12 acres) plot allotted to Lavasa Corporation, owned by Sadanand Sule, Sharad Pawar's son-in-law at the time. He handed over his stake in 2006
(iv)A 1 acre plot allotted to Shivajinagar Agriculture College
(v)A 3 acre plot allotted to Sharadchandraji Scout and Guide Training Institute

Regarding IPL Pawar said he does not have any stake in IPL teams but later he accepted that
0.05% stake in Royal Challengers Bangalore team is alone worth 6 crores.

Pawar has the image of being untrustworthy. His abandoning his mentor Yashwantrao Chavan to win power continues to haunt him as per media reports.

Pawar was once considered a very effective and good manager. Something seems to have gone wrong somewhere

RNSANE July 06, 2010  

It would seem, from your article, sm, that Mr. Pawar, besides being extremely wealthy, is somewhat unscrupulous. If there is any possibility of underworld connections, how could one want him to be prime minister? Maybe I am misreading things. Of course, money does talk but I wish politicians would have the interests of the country at heart. I know that is naive of me.
