If BJP comes to power, it won't last more than 13 days: NCP chief Sharad Pawar

NCP supremo Sharad Pawar said that even if the President invites Modi to form the government, BJP will not be able to prove its majority


Ahead of the last phase of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that even if Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) forms a government after the LS polls results, it will last for only 13 days. 

Even if the President invites Modi to form the government after the Lok Sabha results on May 23, it will be like the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government in 1996 and will last only 13 or 15 days,” said NCP chief Sharad Pawar.

Pawar further asserted that BJP won’t be able to prove the majority saying that all anti-BJP parties are forming an alliance and it will be final on May 21. The opposition leaders will come to Delhi before the election results and will decide on forming a stable government.
