Bhopal: The NCP-Congress combine would have
won the recent Assembly polls in Maharashtra even if MNS led
by Raj Thackeray had not contested it, AICC general secretary
Digvijay Singh said here on Friday.

"It is totally wrong to assume that the Congress and the
NCP won the Maharashtra elections only because of the presence
of MNS," Singh told a news agency.

He said the MNS had cut into votes not only of Shiv Sena
and BJP but also of the Congress and NCP.

The Congress leader who had camped in Mumbai for about
two weeks before the assembly elections said that the polls
were a rejection of communal politics and hatred.
