MVA will go full term, won’t side with BJP even if govt falls: Sharad Pawar

NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, who played a crucial role in the formation of the MVA government, said it will complete its full five-year term, in New Delhi on Tuesday. He ruled out going with BJP, in case the state government falls. In the aftermath of the Eknath Shinde-led rebellion in Shiv Sena, Pawar said he would be leaving for Mumbai soon after the opposition meeting on the joint presidential candidate in the capital and would meet Thackeray later in the day. “There are no differences in the alliance and all have full confidence in the leadership of Thackeray,” he told reporters. Asked about Shinde’s reported demand that he be made the chief minister, Pawar said: “Only you have told me this. Whether he asked someone to make him CM, I don’t know. The understanding among the three parties is Sena has the responsibility of chief ministership. Deputy CM is with NCP. ” Asked if he had spoken with Shinde, Pawar said: “I have not spoken to anyone. I also don’t know where they are staying. ” Pawar said: “Yesterday, there was a (legislative council) election. As far as NCP is concerned. . . not even a single vote of NCP went elsewhere. A candidate of our front could not win due to a shortfall in votes. ” Cross-voting happens in such elections and there was nothing new in it, he said.
