The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar on Monday appealed to the unmarried and single voters to vote for his son, Parth, who is the Congress-NCP candidate from the Maval Lok Sabha Constituency.

Speaking at a mela in Pimpri, Ajit Pawar said that unmarried members are needed in Parliament in Lok Sabha. "Parth is representing this category,” said Pawar.

Sharad Pawar, the 78-year-old Rajya Sabha member and former Union Minister, decided to launch his grand nephew Parth from Maval constituency. “I thought that already two members of my family are contesting the election and this is the time one should think about not contesting. Hence, I felt this is the right time to take a decision not to contest since I have already contested 14 times in the past,” said Pawar at the time of making the announcement.
