Mumbai. After offering unconditional outside support to BJP in Maharshtra, NCP has now gone ahead and extended unconditional support to all winning parties of next 5 assembly elections to be held in the state.
Arguing that they want to get over such post poll speculations in advance, NCP leader Praful Patel promised all single largest parties in future elections of his party’s backing.
“We want to save ours, media’s, political analysts’ and twitterattis time once and for all, so that we all can focus on other important things like post poll benefits,” announced Praful Patel in a press conference.
“Benefits for citizens,” he quickly clarified.
“All winning parties in future be it Shiv Sena, BJP, Congress, MN…errr… never mind, can consider NCP as its natural ally,” Patel continued, “And if we end up as single largest party, we invite everyone in advance.”
“We aren’t like other party leaders who even after having fared poorly continue to have swagger of a party that has won a clear majority,” said Patel, probably hinting at Uddhav Thackeray.
Patel further claimed that NCP was the only party that respected and valued voters’ mandate more than others, in fact, more than the voters.
He also lashed out at those who suggested that NCP was offering support under the fear of corruption cases against party leaders.
Later, the press conference was addressed by Ajit Pawar, who was earlier busy urinating in office toilet.
“Though howsoever secular it may sound, we are not Begani shaadi mein Abdullah deewana, as being suggested by many,” Ajit Pawar explained his party’s position, “But we are more like beech ka bichchoo in a gully cricket match, we play a part in both winning and losing.”
When our reporter pointed that NCP may have by now taken more u-turns than Arvind Kejriwal Kejriwal and Mulayam Singh combined, Ajit Pawar declared unconditional support to this reporter. Fearing loss of reputation, our reporter decided not to ask any more questions.
