Sharad Pawar, a seasoned politician has proved himself by setting foot on every difficult sky. However, his moves and statements often have an undercurrent that is only visible after a period of time.Recently, Pawar’s demand of instituting a special investigation team (SIT) probe into the Bhima Koregaon case has raised many eyebrows.Move to polarise Dalit votes? Political experts say, it is a masterstroke to weaken the Dalit base of Reublican parties, especially of Vanchit Bahujan Aaghadi led by Prakash Ambedkar. After Pawar started raising these issues, the Dalits are seeing a new hope in the leader.Soon after the Maha Vikas Aaghadi government was formed, Pawar has strongly objected and raised concern over the investigation of the Bhima Koregaon and Elgar Parishad cases. He insisted that the state government set up an SIT to probe into the matter.
