The days of ‘one man’ rule are over, now the government is formed at the center with the help of others: Sharad Pawar

The Uncut

Pune: Nationalist Congress Party (Sharadchandra Pawar) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said that the days of “one man” rule in the country are over and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has formed a new government at the Centre with the help of other parties.

Pawar said that with the formation of a coalition government at the Centre, the ‘Modi guarantee’ has now ended and this change has been possible only due to the power of the voters. He was addressing a gathering in Purandar tehsil of Pune, which comes under Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, where he had come to review the situation arising out of water shortage.

The former Union minister said, the elections are over and the government has been formed (at the Centre). For the last 10 years, there was a ‘one man’ government, but now it (the government) has become free from it (that system). This time the government has been formed with the help of others.

He said, the situation is that the government cannot be formed without the help of the Chief Ministers of Bihar (Nitish Kumar) and Andhra Pradesh (N. Chandrababu Naidu). The government has been formed with their help, meaning the days of ‘one person’ running the government are over. This also means that the ‘Modi guarantee’, about which we used to hear, is over and you have the power to end it (this guarantee).

In the recently held Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won 240 seats, which is short of the magic figure of 272 for a majority. In such a situation, it needed the support of allies of the party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to form the government.

NDA has secured majority with the support of Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) which won 16 seats in Andhra Pradesh and Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) which won 12 seats in Bihar and other alliance partners. On the other hand, the alliance of opposition parties ‘India’ won 233 seats, out of which Congress won 99 seats.
