Why is Pawar worried about Tata's statement?

So the Indian Agriculture Minister is worried. An innocuous comment by a man caught in the throes of one of the biggest scams in Indian history seems to have awoken Maharashtra’s giant.

That along with Jairam Ramesh’s notice to Lavasa, of course. Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule and son-in-law Sadanand were major stakeholders in the Lavasa project when it was launched. However, the duo apparently divested their stake in 2004.
