The NCP has said the general view is that the BJP will emerge as the single largest party and the country needs a stable government which will “decisively govern for five years”. The statement by senior NCP leader and Union minister Praful Patel has set off speculation about the stand of the key UPA ally post-poll.
“Call it the exit polls or the opinion polls, this is the general view that the BJP will emerge as the single largest party,” Patel said Tuesday.
Asked if his party would support the NDA if it falls short of the halfway mark needed to stake claim, Patel said no “particular conjecture” should be drawn.

“The question is how close they are able to come to the halfway mark or if they want any ally, all this will become clear on May 16. But the government should be stable. A stable and good government is good for the country,” he said.
Patel’s statements come months after NCP chief Sharad Pawar had said the court’s verdict on BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi’s alleged role in the 2002 riots in Gujarat should be “respected”.
“We are not looking at any particular position. We are a part of UPA. Let’s not draw a particular conjecture,” Patel added.
