Mumbai: Senior NCP leader and minister in Maharashtra government Nawab Malik said that BJP and NCP are two ends of the river. As long as there is water in the river, these two cannot come together. He said that we are completely different, be it ideological or political point of view. It is impossible for NCP and BJP to come together. Politics is based on ideas, there is a vast difference between the nationalism of the Sangh and the nationalism of the Nationalist Party.
Nawab Malik’s statement came at a time when there was a meeting between NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi for about an hour. There is no official information about what issues were discussed between the two leaders, but Shiv Sena says that Sharad Pawar can become a contender for the post of President.
Nawab Malik said that Sharad Pawar is in Delhi for the last 2 days. After being appointed as the Leader of the House of the BJP in the Rajya Sabha, Piyush Goyal himself had a courtesy call on him. Yesterday, Sharad Pawar also met Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.
The NCP leader also termed those things wrong in which it was said that the opposition leaders of Maharashtra met Sharad Pawar. Nawab Malik said, “Many people are trying to mislead. It is being said that opposition leaders from Maharashtra met Sharad Pawar (in the background of his meetings with the PM and Defense Minister).”
Significantly, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had met Sharad Pawar and former Defense Minister and senior Congress leader AK Antony on Friday. Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat and Army Chief General MM Naravane were also present in this meeting.
According to sources, in this meeting, the latest aspects related to the ongoing standoff with China on the border of India in eastern Ladakh were discussed. According to sources, Rajnath Singh apprised Pawar and Antony about the latest situation on the border and India’s military preparedness. Pawar has also been the Defense Minister of the country.
Sharad Pawar is counted among the senior and experienced leaders of the country. The 80-year-old Pawar also has good relations with leaders of all political parties. In the past, he had met many opposition leaders. His exercise was seen as an attempt to strengthen opposition unity.
