Indian democracy in peril due to PM Modi: Sharad Pawar
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a “national calamity” who needs to be defeated in the Lok Sabha polls to safeguard the nation, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said on Monday. Claiming that the country’s democracy was in “peril” and holding Modi solely responsible for it, Pawar wondered whether democracy will survive in the country if the BJP manages to retain power following the general elections.
Canvassing for Navneet Rana, the Yuva Swabhiman Paksh candidate from Amravati Lok Sabha constituency here in Vidarbha region, he dubbed Modi a “national calamity” and said the prime minister should not talk about the ability of the opposition parties to lead the country.
“We can run the country well. Modi need not worry about our ability,” Pawar said. The Yuva Swabhiman Paksh is part of the grand alliance formed by the Congress, NCP and other parties against the BJP-Shiv Sena combine in Maharashtra.
