Maha Vikas Aghadi government will finish full term, do well in polls, says Sharad Pawar | Mumbai News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Dismissing suspicions over the stability of the three-party Maha Vikas Aghadi government (MVA) led by chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, NCP president Sharad Pawar on Thursday said it will complete the five-year tenure and even perform well in the ensuing elections.
“Doubts have been expressed in certain quarters over the stability of the MVA government, but I am confident that there is no threat to the government. It will complete five years and MVA’s performance in the Lok Sabha and state assembly polls will be impressive,” Pawar told senior party leaders on the occasion of the NCP’s 22nd foundation day.
Pawar said he never thought that the NCP would form the government in the state with Shiv Sena, in view of their diagonally opposite ideologies. “We have formed a government of different thoughts and ideologies…and the people of Maharashtra have accepted the MVA government. Significantly, leaders of the three parties are moving in the right direction and for the cause of the people.”
Pawar, the architect of the MVA, said initially even the media had expressed doubts over the state government’s stability and had speculated that it would not last beyond a few days or months, but now the MVA is completing nearly two years.
Referring to the meeting between MVA leaders and PM Narendra Modi, the NCP chief said. “After the delegation met the PM, the CM had a separate meeting with him. Ag-ain there were speculations in the media. In my opinion, there will be no adverse imp-act on the stability of the MVA government; we should ignore such speculations.”
Recalling how late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray supported Congress and did not contest a single seat in the state assembly elections, Pawar said, “After the Janata Party came to power at the Centre and Congress was completely routed, Shiv Sena was the only party that came to its aid. Balasaheb Thackeray promised Indira Gandhi not to field a single candidate in the state assembly elections and fulfilled his promise. Under such circumstances, I do not think that the Shiv Sena will take a different stand in the current political situation.”
He lauded the efforts of the public health department for effective tackling of the pandemic and the food and civil supplies department for providing free food to the needy.
