The former union minister and the chief of the Nationalist Congress Party said here on Wednesday that his party will again tie-up with the Congress for the upcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra. The statement came immediately after Mr. Pawar met Congress president Sonia Gandhi to discuss seat sharing, while it remain unclear whether the numbers have been finalised.
Recently, the NCP leader and the deputy CM of Maharashtra termed the 144 seat share to the party as unfair as the party has resulted better than Congress in the general elections.
In the general elections, Congress won 2 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra while NCP bagged four.
Earlier, the state president of Congress, Manikrao Thakre stated,” There is no question of Congress giving equal share (of seats) to NCP. There is no justification for this demand”.
NCP spokeperson DP Tripathi also pulled his legs in the row demanding two-third seats for NCP in the assembly polls.
