Even though BJP may emerge as the single-largest party in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, NCP chief Sharad Pawar has ruled out possibility of second term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“If the BJP does not get a clear-cut majority, and I am sure that they won’t, they won’t be able to form a government by themselves. In such a situation, there’s every possibility that somebody will form a government with the support of others”, he added.
Even in a case where some parties do support the BJP, Pawar predicts that they will want a leader other than Narendra Modi. He claimed that the country was witnessing a definite shift in public mood against the BJP. “Rural India is practically bent on defeating Modi. They are against the Modi government, they are unhappy with the Modi government,” he added.
He has strongly hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for claiming there were disputes in the former’s family. He deplored that the insinuation was coming from a man who did not have any experience of a family, nor does he know where they are presently.
The former deputy prime minister said, “I would like to tell him that we brothers were raised in a cultured atmosphere and our mother gave us virtues.” He went on add that his brothers were all reputed in their own fields and said how great his mother was that her sons have got Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan.
