New Delhi: NCP chief Sharad Pawar said on Tuesday that the party is in talks with Congress and Trinamool Congress on forging an alliance for the Goa Assembly polls. His remark comes after Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday said the BJP wants to ride on the shoulders of the TMC to come to power in Goa. Shiv Sena is part of Mahrashtra’s ruling alliance which also includes NCP and Congress.
Besides the Congress, Moitra tagged the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) in this tweet. While the Congress has formed an alliance with the GFP, the TMC, a new player in the Goa fray, has tied up with the MGP for the upcoming polls.
“In Uttar Pradesh, we are going to contest elections with Samajwadi Party and other smaller parties. The people of Uttar Pradesh are looking for change. We will surely see the change in the State. We are in talk with Congress and TMC for an alliance for Goa assembly elections”, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar.
He also said that 13 more MLAs are going to join Samajwadi Party (SP) after Uttar Pradesh minister Swami Prasad Maury resigned and joined SP.
Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said that the NCP will participate in three upcoming state elections: Manipur, Goa and UP. In Manipur, there are 4 sitting MLAs and the Congress and the NCP will fight together on five places. In Goa, a discussion between the Congress, TMC and NCP is underway and a final decision on it will be taken in the next two days. In UP, t other small parties have formed an alliance.
As Uttar Pradesh Minister Swami Prasad Maurya resigned from BJP and joined SP, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said that 13 MLAs are going to join the Samajwadi Party. “The people of Uttar Pradesh are looking for change. We will surely see the change in the State,” Pawar said. “Communal polarisation is being done in Uttar Pradesh, ahead of Assembly elections. The people of UP will give a befitting reply to this,” he added.
