Himanta Biswa Sarma Reacts To NCP Leader Sharad Pawar’s Remarks Over India’s Stand With Israel

Sharad Pawar, the leader of the nationalist Congress party (NCP), is currently embroiled in a political controversy as a result of his comments attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for supporting Israel in their conflict with the terrorist organization Hamas. Sharad Pawar’s remark drew an odd response from Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who claimed that it appeared the NCP leader would send Supriya Sule to Gaza to support Hamas.

“I think Sharad Pawar will send Supriya (Sule) to Gaza to fight for the Hamas,” Himanta Biswa Sarma told news agency when asked for a response to the remarks of Sharad Pawar.

Sharad Pawar made some comments about India’s approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict before the Assam Chief Minister poked fun at him. All prior Indian prime ministers, according to the NCP leader, “stood firmly with Palestine.”

“We want peace in the world. Now, there is a war going on between Israel and Palestine. The entire land is of Palestine and Israel encroached on their land. That place, land, and houses, everything was of Palestine and later Israel took over it. Israel is an outsider and the land is originally of Palestine. After encroachment, Israel was formed,” Sharad Pawar said as per news agency.

“Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, and Atal Bihari Vajpayee all had the same thoughts about the Israel-Palestine issue. It was always the stand of the Indian government. India never stood with anyone else. India always stood with people who originally owned the land and houses there (Palestine),” he said.

“It is very unfortunate that for the first time, our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) stood with Israel, leaving the real issue over there. He neglected the real issue. We should be clear about our stand. The stand of the NCP should be clear. We stand by the people who originally belonged to that land,” Pawar added.

The remarks by Sharad Pawar were not taken well especially with the people in BJP as the NCP chief was slammed by the party leaders and Union Minister Piyush Goyal called it preposterous statements on India’s stand on a terror attack in Israel.

“It is very disturbing when a senior leader like Sharad Pawar ji makes preposterous statements on India’s stand on a terror attack in Israel. The menace of terrorism has to be condemned in all forms, in any part of the world. It is a pity that a person who has been India’s Defence Minister as well as a Chief Minister many times has such a casual view on issues relating to terror,” Piyush Goyal posted on X.

NCP leader Jayant Patil commented on the minister’s post on X by saying that the minister should first read the statement from the External Affairs Ministry, which also discussed Palestine. I am aware that the External Affairs Ministry has also released a statement regarding Palestine. He should first read that. Then, I believe, he will comprehend the choices that his country is making.
