NCP will never support BJP and compromise on secularism, says Sharad Pawar
�We will never compromise on secularism. NCP will never be with the communal forces. Those who are favouring and spreading communalism, we will never be with them,� said Pawar.
Responding to the rumours that NCP is getting closer to BJP, Sharad Pawar has retaliated the rumours saying the party will never support the saffron party nor join hands with communal forces and compromise on secularism.
While addressing a public meeting in Vasco to campaign for his party candidate Jose Philipe D Souza, NCP supremo Pawar said: “There are rumours being spread that NCP is growing close to BJP. This is absolutely false news. NCP will never support BJP.”
“We will never compromise on secularism. NCP will never be with the communal forces. Those who are favouring and spreading communalism, we will never be with them,” said Pawar.
When Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray calling off their two-decade-old alliance with the BJP, a speculation has arisen that it could look at NCP to fill the crucial gap ahead of civic polls in Mumbai and other places in Maharashtra.
In the public meeting last night, Pawar slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the demonetisation drive and said that PM is responsible for generating unemployment in the unorganised sector and spelling doom on various sectors including the power loom industry.
“The PM overnight terminated a lot of currency and within a day, the entire country was standing in queues outside banks,” Pawar said.
“People who were dependent on the mining industry were forced to face a bleak future with one decision of Parrikar,” he added.
