Taking a dig at the BJP for an extravagant swearing-in ceremony of its first government in Maharashtra, the NCP on Thursday said it (BJP) has proved that it’s a party with a difference.
“A party with a difference, hence the most lavish oath taking ceremony in the history of Maharashtra government formation,” NCP spokesman Nawab Malik posted on twitter.
Sharad Pawar’s NCP with 41 MLAs has already extended outside support to the BJP-led government which will take oath tomorrow.
The NCP has also said that it will abstain from voting if the new government has to face a trust vote to prove its majority.
The swearing-in ceremony of the new government at Wankhede Stadium here tomorrow will be a lavish affair with about 40,000 guests, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, several of his Cabinet colleagues, chief ministers of BJP-ruled states, besides business leaders, actors and celebrities in attendance.
