Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017: NCP To Contest On All Seats Solo

Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017: NCP To Contest On All Seats Solo

Soon after the Congress announced yesterday that it had struck a deal with Hardik Patel's Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) for quotas for Patels in jobs and education, the NCP decided to make the announcement.

"The Congress has declared candidate from one of the seats where we have a sitting MLA".

Meanwhile, the Sharad Pawar-led NCP, which was not given even a single seat by the Congress in its first list, said that it will go alone in the Assembly polls scheduled to be held on December 9 and December 14.

On Monday, many PAAS supporters indulged in violence and clashed with Congress members at various places in the state. By the evening it was clear that there were differences in PAAS ranks as one of its leaders Lalit Vasoya filed his nomination papers despite PAAS convener Dinesh Bambaniya saying that none from the organisation would do so.

"The Congress has given tickets to two of our members without taking us into confidence".

NCP leader Praful Patel, who is confident about the solo fight, said though the part wanted to form an alliance, the Congress "did not seem serious and kept on delaying". "The BJP had shored up all its might to defeat Patel because they thought defeat of Patel can be dubbed as the defeat of Sonia Gandhi".

It was the trust deficit that led to the Congress cold-shouldering NCP demands during the seat-sharing talks for the Gujarat assembly elections.According to a senior Congress leader, the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party can not be treated as trustworthy and committed to the alliance.

The NCP has two MLAs now.

"Our stand during talks with Congress was that we should get those nine seats, as well as some more seats".
