Sharad Pawar left for Delhi to attend ‘India’ meeting

The Uncut

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (SP) president Sharad Pawar left for Delhi on Wednesday morning to attend the opposition ‘India’ alliance meeting to be held after the Lok Sabha election results. Sources said Pawar may reach Delhi in the afternoon.

It is believed that the 83-year-old veteran leader can play an important role in formulating the future strategy of the opposition alliance. After the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) crossed the magic figure of majority in the Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ready to form the government for the third time.

Pawar on Tuesday said the Lok Sabha election results have shown that the situation in the country is conducive for political change. However, he also said the opposition alliance is unlikely to form a government at the Centre.

When asked who will be the next Prime Minister, Pawar said, “We have not thought about it.” He said, “I am not sure about the India alliance forming the government. We will have a meeting tomorrow and decide on the future strategy by consensus.” Pawar said that his party and Shiv Sena (UBT) have a very good ‘strike rate’ in the Lok Sabha elections.
