Sharad Pawar, president of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), will not join Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra due to health concerns, senior congressional leader Jairam Ramesh said on Thursday.

Ramesh addressed the media here and said that Pawar (81) had previously agreed to participate in the foot march.

“He was recently hospitalized and given a doctor’s advice to rest, he will not participate in (the yatra),” said Ramesh, the general secretary (communications) of the All India Congress Committee.

Pawar’s daughter and NCP Lok Sabha member Supriya Sule, chairman of the state party Jayant Patil and NCP leader Jitendra Awhad reached Nanded district of Maharashtra on Thursday to join Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in Deglur Naka’s foot march and to witness the evening to attend the latter’s public meeting.

AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge will also attend the meeting.

Ramesh said that Rahul Gandhi had spoken to Pawar while he was in the hospital.

“Although Pawar had agreed to join the yatra, he cannot come because of a doctor’s advice to rest,” the congress leader said.

Shiv Sena leader and former state minister Aaditya Thackeray will join the yatra on Friday, he said.
