BJP May Win Most Seats But 2nd Term Unlikely For Modi: Sharad Pawar
Mumbai: NCP Chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said the BJP may emerge as the single largest party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi is unlikely to get a second term in office.
“BJP may emerge as the single largest party post parliamentary elections and will have to seek the support of allies (to form the government). In that scenario, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is unlikely to get a second term,” Pawar said.
The former Union minister said he will meet some regional parties across the country on March 14 and 15 in New Delhi, where a further strategy of ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) will be discussed.
On Monday, Pawar had said he will not contest next month’s Lok Sabha election. The 78-year-old veteran politician had said as two members of his family are going to contest the polls, “somebody had to step back.”
