Sharad Pawar: Karnataka is the beginning, public image of BJP changing

WITH EFFORTS being taken for alliance of all like-minded political parties together at national level, NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Friday said the public image of BJP is changing and people will now refrain from voting for the party. Pawar will be attending the swearing-in ceremony of Siddaramaiah as Karnataka Chief Minister in Bengaluru on Saturday.

“The public image of BJP is changing after the Karnataka assembly elections. People will not vote for the BJP now onwards and it has begun from the Assembly elections in Karnataka,” Pawar told reporters after addressing a gathering of Democratic Party of India (DPI) in the city.

The NCP chief said efforts are on to forge an alliance of like-minded people at national level.

“The Congress has got a thumping victory in the Karnataka Assembly election. I have been invited by Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge for the swearing-in ceremony of Karnataka Chief Minister and I will be attending it,” Pawar said.

He said that various political parties of different states are being brought together to form an alliance against BJP. “Many political parties are giving favourable responses for the alliance. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recently declared that a meeting of leaders of various political parties will be called soon and all will attend it,” NCP chief said.

On the seat-sharing arrangement between Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP for Lok Sabha elections, Pawar said there has been no discussion on it so far and a decision will be taken in a joint meeting.
