Seat sharing on most Maharashtra seats finalized between Congress-NCPMarch 10th, 2009 - 10:52 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Mar 10 (ANI): The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Tuesday said that it has finalized seat-sharing agreement with the Congress on most of the parliamentary constituencies of Maharashtra.
NCP spokesperson D.P. Tripathy said his party is part of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) at the Centre as well as in Maharashtra and talks on remaining seats will be finalized soon.
The NCP has proposed to contest on 24 seats out of 48 seats, which the Congress Party is not willing to concede. The NCP is part of the UPA, not only at the centre, but also in Maharashtra and Goa, where the two parties are running coalition governments, Tripathi told reporters here.
He said in other states the NCP would forge alliance with different secular parties, as Congress has refused a national alliance under the banner of the UPA for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.
