In Ladakh, the Congress is taking a strong stand on the martyrdom of 20 soldiers in the violent clash between the forces of India and China. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi is a constant attacker on the Narendra Modi government and is raising questions one after the other. In such a situation, Congress ally NCP chief Sharad Pawar has done the job of defending the Modi government on the China case and showing Rahul Gandhi the mirror. However, not only China, but whenever the Congress has tried to surround the Modi government, Sharad Pawar has been standing in front of Modi’s defense armor every time.
- Sharad Pawar came in support of Modi government on China case
- Sharad Pawar also gave a blow to Congress on Rafale Deal
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had said on Friday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should tell the truth about this and take action to take back his land, then the whole country will stand with him. On this, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said, ‘We cannot forget what happened in 1962. China had captured our 45 thousand square km of land. This land is still with China, but at present I do not know whether China has taken the land or not, but we should remember the history while talking on it. Politics should not be done for national security.
Pawar said that this is not anyone’s failure. If someone comes (in your area) while patrolling, they can come at any time. We cannot say that this is the failure of the Defense Minister sitting in Delhi. He said that I do not see any fear of war right now. China has apparently committed snowballs, but whatever construction work the Indian Army has done in Galvan has done within its limits.
At the same time, during the Rajya Sabha deputy speaker election last year, it was news that NCP will field its candidate in front of NDA on behalf of the opposition. But on the last occasion NCP Sharad Pawar refused to field his candidate.
Pawar’s statement served as a relief for the BJP running on the backfoot on Rafale. Let us tell you that after the results of the 2014 Maharashtra Legislative Assembly elections, the BJP had fallen 18 seats behind the majority figure. Soon after the results, the NCP announced its support to the BJP to form the government.
At the same time, during the Rajya Sabha deputy speaker election last year, it was news that NCP will field its candidate in front of NDA on behalf of the opposition. But on the last occasion NCP Sharad Pawar refused to field his candidate. After this, the Congress made BK Hariprasad its candidate for deputy speaker of Rajya Sabha, but could not win. There were many occasions when Sharad Pawar was seen standing with the Modi government.
