Sharad Pawar on election results: a blog post of significance

ITB brings to your notice a political blog-post this time, a very powerful post considering its writer and its implications in Indian politics.

One of India’s tallest political leaders and the present Agriculture Minister of India, Sharad Pawar, has analysed the rout of Congress and emergence of Aam Admi Party (AAP) in the recently held assembly elections.

In a clear reference to the weak governance style of Manmohan Singh and the faltering image of Rahul Gandhi, Pawar says: “People need strong, decisive and result oriented leaders. They do not want weak rulers.” He also finds AAP leaders short of vision and substance.


Sharad Pawar also happens to be a key ally of the coalition government at New Delhi. His comments also seem to give message to Congress to either pull up socks or forget about alliance with me in the next general elections.
