The Nationalist Congress Party is at it again. The party praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his visit to the Siachen in the valley on Diwali and spending it with the flood victims and the armed forces.
The Nationalist Congress Party is at it again.
The party praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his visit to the Siachen in the valley on Diwali and spending it with the flood victims and the armed forces.
State NCP chief Thakur Randhir Singh said, “Modi’s visit to highest conflict zone Siachen in Ladakh is a great encouragement to our armed forces who are defending our borders under the most difficult conditions.”
He also appreciated the package announced by the Prime Minister for the flood-affected residents of the state.
“I welcome the package announced by the Prime Minister for the flood-hit residents of the state. Prime Minister’s decision to spend Diwali in Jammu and Kashmir and also with our brave soldiers that too at highest conflict zone at Siachen was a good decision,” he said.
This is the second time the party has come in support of BJP and PM Modi. After their split with Congress and BJP’s big win in Haryana and Maharashtra, NCP has been trying too hard to woo the ruling party.
They immediately announced outside support to the future BJP government after party’s win in Maharashtra. They have a lot at stake and that is precisely why they want BJP by their side desperately.
As mentioned in an earlier article, NCP needs government support to retain clout in cooperatives sector – a position enjoyed by the party and its chief Sharad Pawar – that also drives rural economy. Congress will prove to be a big rival here and what would be more better than to have the government by your side.
Next in line is the great revelation by former CAG Vinod Rai through his book which claims that former aviation minister and NCP leader Praful Patel deliberately put Air India through loss. In addition to this are other corruption charges to deal with.
The biggest in the line is the investigation on irrigation scam. The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) had recently asked for permission for an open inquiry against former Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and senior leader Sunil Tatkare in connection with the irrigation scam.
Now that Shiv Sena has actually read it numbers and wants to join BJP again, this all wooing won’t work.
