Sharad Pawar, the Chief of the Nationalist Congress Party, has stated he is not running for the post of prime minister and that the party in opposition wants an administration that will fight for the advancement of the nation.
At a memorial service for the recently deceased vice chancellor of Pune University, Ram Takawale, Pawar said that “opponents may find it difficult to portray one candidate as the prime ministerial nominee if they band together.”
“I’m making an attempt to unite the opposition. I’m not running for prime minister because I’m not running in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.” Pawar stated.
Headded, “Recently, a conference was conducted at my residence. It was regarding seat-sharing with the Congress and the Shiv Sena-Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray, which are both a component of the Maha Vikas Aghadi. It will be decided by Maha Vikas Aghadi leaders.”
Regarding seat-sharing, he stated, “Uddhav Thackeray, Sonia Gandhi, and Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge and I will sit together to discuss it further.”
