Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar in parliament generated a buzz today.
The two spoke for about 20 minutes at PM Modi’s office in parliament.
The details of the meeting are not known yet but significantly, PM’s meeting with one of the senior most opposition politicians in the country comes months before the Presidential election.
Mr Pawar last evening held a meeting at his home for MLAs and leaders from Maharashtra.
Besides MLAs from Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition, the meeting at Mr Pawar’s home also featured Union Minister and senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.
The NCP said the meeting was on “Maharashtra-related issues”.
