Sharad backtracks on his snap poll comment

Sharad backtracks on his snap poll comment - Sakshi Post

A day after his remarks about snap polls in Maharashtra created ripples, NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said it was not his intention to topple the Devendra Fandnavis-led BJP government in the state.

"We don't have any interest in toppling this government," Pawar said while speaking at the valedictory of the two-day conclave of senior NCP leaders at Alibaug. He said his Tuesday speech was misquoted.
On Narendra Modi's style of functioning, Pawar said, "We don't know about the product but the marketing is excellent.
"People support us because of the attention we pay to developmental work," he said. "Times have changed. People want quick results," Pawar said.
Pawar ridiculed experts on TV debates, saying there are the same four-five faces who speak on every topic. Citing TV debates on his remarks on snap polls yesterday, he said the propaganda that we want to topple this government in wrong.
Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena hit out at Sharad Pawar for his snap poll comments. "Sharad Pawar is taking advantage of this unstable government, but the Shiv Sena will stand firmly here. Let Pawar do whatever he wishes to. The Sena is fulfilling its role as an Opposition party honestly and with utmost sincerity," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.
The Sena alleged that Pawar is known for playing politics of distrust, which is why he first gave support to the BJP and is now apparently threatening to withdraw it.
