1 min read

Amid the estranged BJP ally Shiv Sena’s efforts to get NCP-Congress support for government formation in Maharashtra, Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party came in for rare praise from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday.

Speaking in Rajya Sabha during a special discussion marking 250 sessions of the Upper House of the Parliament, Modi said people’s hearts can be won by political parties even without rushing to the Well of the House to register their protest on various issues.

“Today I want to appreciate two parties, NCP and BJD. These parties have strictly adhered to parliamentary norms. They have never gone into the well. Yet, they have raised their points very effectively,” Modi said.
