    Senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi today invited NCP President Sharad Pawar to join NDA, saying "he would be able to end quarrels within the BJP-led alliance and could also become Prime Minister".

    Hailing the Maratha strongman's political skills, Joshi, who attended a function organised here on the eve of Pawar's birthday tomorrow, told reporters "Pawar should join NDA to end quarrels within the alliance and bring together all factions. If he joins NDA, he can also become the Prime Minister."

    Asked whether other NDA constituents would accept such a proposal, the former Lok Sabha Speaker quipped "Pawar can get it done."

    Earlier, the former Maharashtra Chief Minister, addressing the gathering, showered praise on Pawar and said the NCP leader has the capability to become Prime Minister.

    To a question, Joshi maintained the temporary structure built at Mumbai's Shivaji Park, where the last rites of Sena chief Bal Thackeray were performed, was linked with "sentiments" of the party.

    There would not be any compromise on the stand taken by the party on keeping the structure intact, he said.

    When pointed out that Sena stand could precipitate a showdown with the Congress-NCP government in the state, Joshi said "we will persist with our stand in the matter".

    Pawar is Yeddyurappa to the power n. Shiv Sena dont seem to be the brightest sparks, no wonder they could come to power in their home state only once.

    Not a bright statement. It means there are issues within the NDA which are really deep and troubling.


    Pawar I think has already said he is not going to fight another election. Joshiji, bhat are you doing ?

    So much praise for Pawar, no wonder he holds the industrial/political strings which everyone aspire for :taunt1:

    Sharad Pawar does not have the aura of a clean political personage.

    If he becomes the PM, then the death knell of the Coalition would have been sounded.

    This is a very big carrot thrown at Mr. Pawar who is an ambitious man in my opinion.
    I wonder how BJP would handle it. I hope they wouldn't accept Pawar in NDA. If they did, I'm not voting for them at any cost.

    Pawar is out of hospital. He will reply by asking Sena to rather join UPA & grab a ministry or two ! :troll:
