NCP Chief Sharad Pawar is hopeful that Anti-BJP Alliance will be coming to power after the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. He, however, makes it clear Rahul Gandhi isn't in PM Race and he is just fighting to defeat Modi.

Sharad Pawar believes Congress which was restricted to less than 50 in 2014 will increase its tally to over 100 MP Seats in 2019. He told all the parties which are part of Anti-BJP Alliance will take a call on who has to be the Prime Minister. 'Manmohan Singh was preferred by all the allies from 2004 to 2014. Even now a leader acceptable to all the allies will become PM,' he said.

Mr.Pawar feels BJP might emerge as a single largest party but it will definitely fall short of the magic figure. He opined BJP Leaders are projecting Rahul Gandhi as incapable because they feel Congress President could pose a threat to them sometime in future. NCP Supremo went on to say there is nothing like 'Mahagathbandhan' and it's a word coined by Modi to show the Opposition Alliance in poor light. He told BJP has been diverting the people towards Hindu Nationalism and Balankot Strikes as they don't have any good work done to show.
