New Delhi , Mar 13 (ANI): The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Friday said a Maharashtrian should also be given an opportunity to occupy the Prime Ministers chair.

There is a feeling among Maharashtrian people that a number of states like Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat , and Karnataka have got a chance to occupy the Prime Ministers office. So Maharashtra should get an opportunity as well, Pawar told a local TV news channel.

He, however, said one should not think of becoming the Prime Minister when he or she is contesting from limited number of seats.

If my party is contesting hardly 30-35 seats in the entire country, how can anybody expect that I can take the responsibility to lead the nation with such a small number, he said. (ANI)
