Advani has no strength to lead India: Pawar

Written by: Staff

Pune /Siliguri, Mar 29: Sharad Pawar, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief has lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the 2002 massacre in Gujarat.

"The poll battle is between the NDA and the UPA. UPA's prime ministerial candidate is Dr Manmohan Singh while the NDA has declared Advani as its nominee. Advani has no strength to lead the country, as he and the Gujarat government are responsible for massacre in the state. Now at the time of polls, these people have started speaking about unity in the country, which does not suit them," Pawar said in a public rally on Saturday, Mar 29.

Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister and senior leader of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee addressed a public rally in support of his party's candidates in Siliguri.

"In the four and half years tenure of the Congress-led Central coalition, they have given nothing to the common man apart from exploitation and suffering. This time the people of India will go against them," said Bhattacharjee.

CPI (M)-led Left Front coalition will face a formidable challenge from the Congress- Trinamool Congress allies in West Bengal in the wake of Tata Motors, moving out their Nano small car project from state's Singur to Sanand in Gujarat.
