Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar said on Tuesday that today’s politics has lost its decent language and the kind of language used today was never heard before. He was speaking in a discussion related to the 1979 Marathi film ‘Sinhasan’ directed by Jabbar Patel. The film revolves around the politics of Maharashtra in the 1970s. He said, “Politics has lost its decent language today. The extremist language that is used now was never a part of political discourse in the past.”

Asked what he misses about those days, Pawar said, “Politics in those days was more dignified.”
Pawar was the chief minister of Maharashtra when the film was made, and he gave Patel permission to shoot inside the ministry as well as the offices and bungalows of the then ministers and legislators.
The film is based on two novels – Mumbai Date and Simhasan – written by journalist-writer Late Arun Sadhu, while the screenplay was written by Late Vijay Tendulkar.
When asked which character in the film he most sympathized with, Pawar said it was the journalist played by the late Neelu Phule.
Pawar said, “Journalists who cover the government sometimes feel that they know everything and some of them even become advisors to ministers and legislators.”
Patekar and Agashe said that politics is never innocent. Agashe said, ‘But it was never a feeling of vengeance. There were certain principles that were followed, which we fail to see today.
