Government has the numbers and will last its full term says Pawar
New Delhi, July 8 : The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has claimed with confidence that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government will prove its majority in any trust vote in Parliament.
The NCP chief, Sharad Pawar said today in New Delhi that the Government would last its full term as it has the requisite numbers on its side.
Sharad Pawar said that the Indo-US Civil Nuclear Deal is in the interest of the country and questioned the timing of the withdrawal of support by the Left, when the Prime Minister is on foreign soil.
However, Pawar expressed gratitude to the Left Parties for extending vital support to the UPA Government during the last four years.
He also added that the Left Parties have not kept the Government in dark, as they were clear about withdrawing support in case the Government goes ahead with the nuclear deal.
