A few days after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray met NCP leader Ajit Pawar to join the Congress-led alliance of opposition parties against the ruling BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
The former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Congress leader on Friday said that there was no place for the MNS in the proposed alliance of opposition parties for Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra and this has been conveyed to the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP),
“We have ideological differences with MNS, and any kind of electoral tie-up with it would be difficult,” he told reporters.
However, as per the sources, the NCP wants the MNS in the alliance.
Meanwhile, on alliance with other parties, Chavan said, “We want Ambedkar to be part of our alliance so that the BJP does not benefit (from the division of votes).”
