Seat-sharing talks between Sharad Pawar’s NCP and Congress are still on in Maharashtra, said Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly, said Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil on Wednesday.

Discussion still continues over five to six seats in Lok Sabha Elections, mostly concern to Ahmednagar, reports a senior Congress leader to sources.

Mr. Patil said that “there is a chance of change in the seat-sharing arrangement, including for Ahmednagar.”

Notably, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil’s son Sujay Vikhe Patil had in December 2018 said that he will contest the election from Ahmednagar even if Congress does not give him a nomination from there.

However, Mr. Patil had downplayed his son’s remark, justifies it saying that his son will remain in the party and will contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha Elections on Congress ticket only.

Central Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar and six to seven other seats have always been a matter of contention between Congress and NCP, which recently decided to form an alliance for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.   

However, NCP has been contesting in the Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat since 1999.
