November 01, 2019  18:53
Congress' Maharashtra unit president Bala Saheb Thorat on Friday said that the Nationalist Congress Party and his party have no strategy of forging an alliance with the Shiv Sena as both the parties have got mandate to sit in the opposition.

Thorat met Congress general secretary KC Venugopal at the party headquarters in New Delhi along with senior leaders Manikrao Thackerey and Vijay Wadettiwar.

Speaking to ANI, Thorat said: "This was our first meeting with the high command after the assembly results were announced. We had a detailed discussion with Venugopal ji on Maharashtra results and Congress' performance. We are analysing the political situation in Maharashtra."

Asked if the NCP-Congress was mulling to support the Shiv Sena from outside, he said: "We do not have that strategy. We are just watching how things unfold. We have got the mandate to sit in the opposition. They are fighting just to get a bigger share in the government."
