After two Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor and Abhishek Manu Singvi showered praises on PM Narendra Modi's speeches in the US, another political stalwart who has hailed his speech is the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar.
According to NDTV report, Pawar said that Modi's 'marketing and management skills' are better than the other prime ministers".
He also said that Modi has the ability to promote his work like few prime ministers have been able to do before him.
He also noted that Modi spent more time in New York as compared to Washington, as more Indians live there, which, in turn sent a strong message about his 'popularity' among the Indian Diaspora.
Noting that New York has a large Indian population, particularly of Gujaratis, Pawar told a Marathi television news channel in Pune on Monday, that it was a "very intelligent and practical decision" on Modi's part to address NRI section during his visit to the US.
However, on Tuesday, Pawar had said that 'Modi wave is no longer a factor in Maharashtra'.
As Maharashtra is scheduled to hold assembly elections on October 15, the former state CM Prithviraj Chavan alleged that NCP "colluded" with BJP to overthrow the state government just a few days before the Assembly polls.
However, the BJP has already ruled out any post-poll tie-up with the NCP.
