On Monday, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar said that the efforts are still on to form ‘anti-BJP alliance’ in Maharashtra for the forthcoming Lok Sabha Elections, scheduled on May.
“We will continue to fight the RSS ideology. Our stand regarding RSS is very clear. We don’t agree with the ideology,” said the NCP Chief.
“What more commitment can one ask for,” said the former Union Minister when asked about Dalit leader Prakash Ambedkar’s pre-condition on joining the proposed Congress-led ‘grand alliance’ in Maharashtra.
Mr. Ambedkar headed the Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh said that Congress will have to come up with an “agenda” to “rein in the RSS” before the seat-sharing discussions between the two political parties.
When inquired about the contours of an anti-BJP alliance, Mr. Pawar claims that efforts are still on to form a ‘grand alliance’ against the outfit in Maharashtra, which acquires the second highest number of Lok Sabha seats in the country, which is 48-seats.
“How to free the society from forces propagating RSS ideology should be everyone’s responsibility,” added Mr. Pawar.
All like-minded parties should merge together to fight against RSS ideology, said the NCP Chief.
