"Sharad Pawar is an extremely experienced man. He is once again out on a tour of drought affected regions to take a stock of farmers affected by the natural calamity. The government should have no qualms about taking guidance from him," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.

The party, which is part of the ruling coalition in the state, said that there should be no politics over the critical issue of drought. The party, however, hit out at other NCP leaders, saying they are "in the habit of playing politics over the drought conditions.”
"They will shout and say the government took guidance from Pawar. Politics should not be played over the issue and Pawar should be the first person to realize this," it said.
Criticizing the previous Congress NCP government, the Sena said if measures were taken to cap the problems arising out of the drought conditions while the Congress and NCP were in power, the problems would not have grown manifold now.

State Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis along with his party colleagues has toured the drought hit regions and Sena leaders too will undertake a tour soon, "because being a part of the government it is our duty to do so. There is no question of politics," the ruling alliance partner said.
