Want a stable government: Praful Patel
Amid speculations of alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) if it comes to power, Congress ally Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel said his party preferred a "stable government."
"Whoever forms the government should be a stable government...people's mandate has to be respected," he told reporters on Tuesday.
On being asked about the NCP's future course, he said, "We have been a part of the UPA (United Progressive Alliance), but the real issue is that the country needs a stable government,"
Speaking on whether to support the BJP, "The question is whether they reach a majority. Only time will tell if they need other parties. But it is clear that the government should be stable."
However, he said, "Don't draw us into conjecture. We have been a UPA ally but the real issue is that the country should get a stable government. As far as we are concerned, NCP has always acted as a responsible political party."
His comments come a day after majority of exit polls showed that the BJP and its allies will win the Lok Sabha polls that concluded on Monday.
