MUMBAI: Hours after he resigned as deputy Chief Minister, some NCP workers on Tuesday hailed Ajit Pawar and demanded that he return to the party fold.

Placards reading "Dada we love you" and "ekach vaada, Ajit Dada (Only one promise -- Ajit Dada)" were raised outside a hotel here where a joint meeting of the NCP, Shiv Sena, and Congress leaders is underway.

Ajit Pawar broke ranks with his party and supported the BJP. He was sworn in as deputy CM along with Devendra Fadnavis as CM last Saturday.

Ajit was sacked as the NCP's legislature party leader the same day, but he continued to be part of the NCP.

Both Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar resigned earlier in the day.

While the NCP leader remained incommunicado, Fadnavis said that Ajit told him that he was quitting for "personal reasons."
