Criticising the NDA government's "wrong foreign policy", NCP president Sharad Pawar on Friday said it has brought down the country's image at international level.

"The NDA government's wrong foreign policy has brought down the image of the country," he told an election rally at suburban Borivali here.

"The country was once the leader of the non-aligned countries, but has now lost that position due to the wrong foreign policy of the NDA government," Pawar told the rally organised for filmstar Govinda, who is contesting on Congress ticket from North Mumbai against BJP candidate and Union Minister Ram Naik.

Moreover, the NDA Government had done injustice to the people of Iraq by not supporting them during their need even when it had provided assistance to the country for fighting terrorism, the NCP chief said.

Also, the NDA Government's wrong economic policy has brought suffering to the farmers of the country, he added.

Addressing the rally, Filmstar-turned-politician Govinda also attacked the Opposition leaders for criticising Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

"The NDA government has not fulfilled any of the demands," Govinda said adding, there is no alternative than to bring the Congress and NCP back to power to solve the problems of the country.
