The decision to organize this grand welcome in Pune was explained by Pune NCP (Ajit Pawar faction). Pardeep Deshmukh, the Working President of Ajit Pawar's NCP Faction, stated, "Two months ago, Ajit Pawar was sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra, and since then, he has received a warm welcome across the state. Although we welcomed him in various places, Pune was unable to do so due to certain reasons. Ajit Pawar graciously allocated time for this event on Sunday, allowing us to hold this grand rally."
