Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s wife Sunetra, who is set to be elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha, on Friday (June 14) said that she will be happy to accept any offer of berth in the Union Council of Ministers and strive to make the most of the opportunity. She said that her party NCP is doing an introspection of her loss in the Baramati Lok Sabha seat in the Pune district and will take corrective measures post the analysis. Sunetra Pawar had lost to her sister-in-law and NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar) MP Supriya Sule on the seat.

Sunetra filed her nomination papers in Mumbai on Thursday as the NCP candidate for Rajya Sabha bypoll in the state. She is the only candidate in the fray and is set to be elected unopposed to the Upper House of the Parliament.

What did she say?

Asked by reporters if she will accept an offer of a berth in the central ministry, she said, "Of course, if given a chance, I will surely seize the opportunity."

The NCP currently has no representation in the Union Council of Ministers who were sworn-in on June 9.

The NCP turned down the BJP's offer to accommodate senior leader Praful Patel as a minister of state with independent charge in the new NDA government.

Sunetra Pawar said during campaigning in the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, a stronghold of the Pawar family, she received tremendous response from people, but ultimately voters' verdict has to be accepted.

"We are doing an introspection (of the loss in Baramati) of what exactly happened and after the analysis, corrective measures will be taken," she emphasised.
