AHMEDABAD, March 19 - NCP supremo Sharad Pawar today said all the like-minded parties need to come together to counter the BJP. He also said that with Yogi Adityanath becoming the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the �mandir-masjid� politics may get a boost.
�Looking at the kind of support BJP has garnered in the Assembly elections, it is very clear that all the like-minded parties need to come together (to face it),� said Pawar, who was here to inaugurate NCP�s new office.
�All the (non-BJP) parties need to do introspection about their shortcomings. To provide a strong alternative to BJP, it is necessary that all the like-minded parties come together,� he said. Asked if any talks had started for this purpose, Pawar said he wasn�t aware. � PTI
