Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Monday said that as of now there is “no alternative” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the country.
Pawar was replying to a query by reporters on the opposition parties planning to challenge Modi’s leadership ahead of the Lok Sabha polls due next year.
“As of now, there is no alternative to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the country. Such a decision is taken based on various aspects and not just one or two things,” Pawar said.
“You people do a lot of propaganda,” he told the mediapersons.
But questions like who will protect the country’s interests, in whose hands the country will be safer and stronger, and who raised the country’s image at the international stage, these factors matter a lot, Pawar said.
“We have also seen results (of recent assembly polls) in three states – Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. A guess work before the elections does not mean results will be the same,” he said.
The BJP won the polls in these three states.
