Shirdi: Union Minister and NCP leader Praful Patel on Thursday said here that his party, now a constituent of UPA, would not be crossing over to NDA.
Earlier, Patel`s statements elsewhere that BJP would emerge as the single largest party and the country needed a stable, decisive government had led to the speculation that NCP may leave UPA and join BJP-led NDA after tomorrow`s election results.

Talking to reporters after visiting the Saibaba temple here, Patel said his party had contested the elections as a part of UPA and would continue with it.

He also said that contrary to exit poll predictions, no one party or alliance would win a simple majority.

Patel also said the country needed a stable government.
