Mumbai: Senior Congress leader and Maharashtra Chief Minster Prithviraj Chavan has in a way accepted that the ruling party is going to fare badly in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections and may play a supportive role in government formation.
Speaking to a news network, Chavan said the Congress would do well in Mumbai and that the possibility of the Third Front and the Congress coming together could not be ruled out.
According to Chavan - whose remarks were published on a website - the BJP-led NDA, whose prime ministerial candidate is Narendra Modi, will not secure more than 180 seats compared to the 230+ predicted by opinion polls.
He referred to the 2009 surveys which had predicted a poor show for the Congress, but poll results returned a different picture altogether.
