Samajwadi Party to support Sharad Pawar as PMApril 24th, 2009 - 10:45 pm ICT by ANI
Mumbai, Apr 24 (ANI): Samajwadi Party (SP) General Secretary Amar Singh on Friday said his party would support Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar as Prime Minister.
“The NCP is expected to win at least 15 of 21 seats in Maharashtra. Nobody can become Prime Minister with support of 15 MPs. But Pawar is one such person who has friends and supporters in all political parties. The SP will extend support to Pawar as Prime Ministerial candidate,” Singh said during a roadshow here.
SP’s statement came after All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) chief Jayalalitha said she was ready to back Pawar as PM since he was mature and sincere.
Orissa Chief Minister and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) supremo Naveen Patnaik has also said that he was open to back Pawar as Prime Minister. (ANI)
