NCP chief Sharad Pawar's only daughter Supriya Sule is set to enter the Rajya Sabha. In an interview with NDTV shortly after she joined the NCP, Supriya Sule had openly admitted that she needs more time. Ironically, just two months later, she has got the NCP ticket for the Rajya Sabha seat vacated after Chavan's death. And with the Congress, NCP's ally, set to support her candidature, her victory is a foregone conclusion.
Pawar has always been a bitter critic of Congress party's dynastic politics, but with his own daughter getting the Rajya Sabha ticket two months after joining the party, he can hardly afford to take the moral high ground. - NDTV, 5 September 2006
