After Lok Sabha elections debacle, Congress says ready to ally with Raj Thackeray-led MNS
By Freepressjournal 02-Aug-2019
The MNS chief had led an aggressive campaign in the state against Prime Minister Modi during the recent Lok Sabha. The MNS did not contest the Lok Sabha polls but had fielded candidates in the 2009 and 2014 assembly polls in which its tally came down drastically from 13 to one. The fortunes of Congress-NCP combine in Maharashtra have also seen a downward graph in the last few years. The grand old party could manage to grab only one of the 48 LS seats, while Sharad Pawar’s NCP managed to win only four.
So, eyeing the state assembly elections, Congress is now ready to take along all "secular forces" who were anti-BJP. Gaikwad told DNA, "There is no untouchability in politics. There was a time when the BJP was treated as such. The history is known to all. However, they (the BJP's previous avatar as the Jan Sangh) were taken along by Jayprakash Narayan (during the Emergency) and later by Sharad Pawar (when he formed the Progressive Democratic Front government in Maharashtra in 1978."
