Amid rumors that Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar may become the leader or convener of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), the Shiv Sena on Friday proposed the formation of a new front of all opposition parties in the state, such as Maharashtra Vikas Agadi. . Sena chief and chief spokesman Sanjay Rawat should be the UPA leader for Power or its convener to ship more opposition parties.
The Shiv Sena withdrew from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) after severing ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), but has not yet formally joined the UPA.
“Given the current political situation, the country’s opposition must come together and make some decisions. Congress is a big party, but it is also a fact that they have not been able to get an opposition leader in the Lok Sabha. In this situation, we must all work together to strengthen the UPA. Can there be a front in Maharashtra like there is in Maharashtra Vikas Agadi and who can lead it? All this can be discussed, ”Rawat told reporters in Mumbai.
The Sena MP is expected to leave for New Delhi over the weekend to discuss the new political dynamics.
Pawar, meanwhile, denied that there was any plan to appoint him as the UPA chief in the post held by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
Rawat said Pawar was the “tallest” leader in the country. In the past few weeks, the Sena’s chief spokesman has said that the Marathas have the ability to unite the country’s scattered opposition against the BJP.
“If Pawar Saheb becomes the UPA chief, we will be happy. However, we have not seen any such development. Yesterday, Pawar Saheb denied this. Sharad Pawar is the tallest leader of the country and Maharashtra. No. If there is such a plan, we will support it, ”he added.
Meanwhile, Congress leader and former MP Sanjay Nirupam called for political development to “destroy” the Congress party. The campaign against Rahul Gandhi from Delhi to Mumbai is part of the campaign to make Sharad Pawar the leader of the United Progressive Alliance. 23 The signature-letter was written under the same campaign. The ‘instability’ of Ragulji’s leadership is part of the same campaign. This is a big plan to destroy the Congress, ”Nirupam tweeted.
While referring to Pawar’s comments about Rahul Gandhi in an interview last week as ‘instability’, Nirupam referred to a letter written by 23 Congress leaders demanding change in the party.
