Cong to contest 174 seats, NCP 114 in Maharashtra assembly polls

The Congress and NCP finally arrived on a seat-sharing formula for the upcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra. The Congress will contest 174 seats, while the NCP will contest 114 seats.

Senior Haryana minister Birendra Singh, who is heading the screening committee for Maharashtra, said the two parties have stitched the alliance under which Congress would contest 174 and NCP 114 seats respectively.

The pre-poll buzz is that Congress and NCP would go to polls on the theme of “Rashtra ke bad Maharashtra” (Maharashtra to take cue from nation) in an obvious reference to the victory of the UPA coalition in the Lok Sabha polls.
