Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday said there is a need to restructure the UPA. He added that the new alliance should be led by a senior leader like Sharad Pawar as many regional parties are not ready to work under the leadership of the Congress. The future of this alliance would depend on the sacrifice of the Congress, he said.
The Sena MP added that there was no National Democratic Alliance left in the country as its allies have quit, but similarly, the existence of the United Progressive Alliance is not visible as it has very few parties now.
"This new alliance should be led by a senior leader like Sharad Pawar. If that happens, then many more parties can join the alliance in future. But this is not possible without the consent of the Congress. This future of the (restructured) alliance will depend on the sacrifice and liberality of the Congress," Raut added.
