Pawar should show courage to follow Mamata`s suit: Munde
Mumbai: BJP deputy Leader in Lok Sabha Gopinath Munde on Thursday said NCP chief Sharad Pawar should show "courage" to withdraw support to UPA government like his Trinamool Congress counterpart Mamata Banerjee.
"Mamata Banerjee showed the courage to pullout of the UPA, similarly NCP chief Sharad Pawar should also show the courage," Munde told a press conference.
The UPA partners always complain of being not taken into confidence before any policy decision is taken by Centre, they should now stop making complaints and take some action, he said.
Munde said the NDA will scrap the Centre`s decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail if elected to power.
"Leave alone the people, the government does not even take the alliance partners into confidence while taking major decisions," he added.
Criticising Congress for "lacking in conviction", Munde said, "If any good decision is taken they (Congress) take the credit. However, if anything bad happens they blame Pawar and alliance partners for it".
Slamming Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil for "excessive" police bandobast for today`s bandh, Munde said had such security measures been put in place during the August 11 protest rally, the incident could have been averted.
