Mumbai, Dec 6: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar will rejoin the Maharashtra cabinet as deputy chief minister on Friday, days after he got a clean chit in the alleged irrigation scam in the state.

Pawar will be sworn-in 9.30 a.m. on Friday by Governor K. Sankaranarayanan, a top Raj Bhavan official said.

Pawar, nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, had quit in a huff Sep 25 after his name cropped up in the alleged scam. (IANS)
