Congress leader Nana Patole to meet Maharashtra Governor, discuss important issues

Maharashtra Governor Ramesh Bais is scheduled to meet a Congress delegation led by Nana Patole, the state president of the party.

According to the sources, discussions will be held on important issues of the state, during the meeting, reported ANI.

Earlier this week, speaking to ANI, the Maharashtra Congress chief said that the party has prepared the strategy for the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections and expressed confidence in the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) winning with full majority in the assembly polls.

The Maharashtra assembly elections are expected to be held in October 2024 as the term of the current state assembly is ending this year, reported ANI.

In the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress party marginally improved its seat share in the state by securing 13 seats while the BJP dipped to nine seats from 23 in the 2019 general elections. BJP's vote share was 26.18 per cent.

In Maharashtra, the ruling three-party Mahayuti alliance including BJP managed to garner 17 seats, while the opposition alliance, Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) which includes Congress bagged 30 out of the 48 seats across the west Indian state.

The NCP chief, Ajit Pawar, who is a part of the Mahayuti alliance with BJP, said that his party would get a Cabinet position in Narendra Modi's team within two months. He said by that time the party would have added two more Rajya Sabha MPs, reported ANI.

The NCP's non-participation in the Union Council of Ministers had raised speculations about an internal tussle within the party and neglect by the BJP. Opposition leaders said that the BJP was out to finish Ajit Pawar's party.

Asserting that the party that all was not lost and they should fight the adversity, he said, “PM Modi-ji told us that he wanted to give us a berth, but that of a minister of state with independent charge."

"We also told him that we would stay with the NDA even without a position,” said Pawar.

According to sources, the BJP has promised NCP a Rajya Sabha seat that its newly-elected Lok Sabha member Udayanraje Bhonsale will vacate. One more RS seat that BJP's Piyush Goyal holds will be up for grabs in the by-polls.
