Mumbai, May 22 UNI | 2 months ago

The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), which won merely four seats of the 48 in Maharashtra, today said the outcome of the Assembly elections which are due in November this year could be different than that of the Lok Sabha results.

A meeting of NCP leaders attended by legislators and other leaders was held at the residence of deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.

Talking to mediapersons NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said, 'The Assembly elections result will see a turnaround.'

He further refuted Congress leader Digvijay Singh's offer for Sharad Pawar and Mamata Banerjee to join the Congress and said the NCP will have its separate status while maintaining an alliance with the Congress.

NCP has been ruling in Maharashtra for the past 15 years along with the Congress. They are facing an uphill task of retaining their supremacy in the state.
