The Election Commission of India on Thursday allotted "man blowing turha (a traditional trumpet)" as the symbol of the Nationalist Congress Party-Sharadchandra Pawar.

"As per the request received, "Man Blowing Turha" is allotted to the group/party in all the parliamentary constituencies in the State of Maharashtra," the Election Commission said in its statement.

In a release, the Secretariate of the Election Commission of India said "The Commission has already allotted the name of "Nationalist Congress Party - Sharadchandra Pawar to the group led by Sh. Sharad Pawar (respondent) as per the Commission's Final Order dated 06.02.2024 in Dispute Case No. 2 of 2023, till further orders by Hon'ble Supreme Court in the matter. Further, as per the request received, "Man Blowing Turha" is allotted to the group party in all the parliamentary constituencies in the State of Maharashtra."

The 'turha' is a traditional trumpet.

"Our candidates will contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls on this symbol," NCP-Sharadchandra Pawar spokesperson Clyde Crasto told PTI.

Sharing the symbol of the party on microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter), the party posted, “Tutari' is ready to blow the trumpet once again to shake the throne of Delhi along with Sharad Chandra Pawar."

"Give me a trumpet

I will blow with my soul

Bheduni Takin all the skies

With that long scream

Give me such a trumpet, Majlaguni!"

"In the history of Maharashtra, Chhatrapati Shiv Rai's valor, the Trumpet, which set the ears of the throne of Delhi, is a matter of pride for 'Nationalist Congress Party - Sharad Chandra Pawar' today. With the progressive thoughts of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the idol of Maharashtra, Phule, Shahu, Ambedkar, respected Mr. This 'Tutari' is ready to blow the trumpet once again to shake the throne of Delhi along with Sharad Chandra Pawar saheb!"

This decision comes days after the Election Commission recognized Ajit Pawar’s faction as the real NCP and gave the party name and 'clock' symbol to the faction led by Deputy CM Ajit Pawar.

The Sharad Pawar-founded NCP split in July last year after Ajit Pawar and eight other MLAs joined the Eknath Shinde government.
