Congress-NCP meet over seat sharing inconclusive
Mumbai: The meeting of leaders of the
Congress and NCP Tuesday night to discuss seat-sharing for Mumbai
civic elections remained inconclusive, sources said.
The leaders of the two parties met at the residence of
PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal.
NCP has demanded more than 65 seats to which Congress did
not agree, they said.
Sources said Congress was ready to give 65 seats in 2007
but the talks had failed and the alliance had been called off.
NCP wants more than 65 seats this time as the party has one
Lok Sabha MP from Mumbai as well.
NCP city unit chief Narendra Varma said talks were held
cordially. "Both parties have agreed to have an alliance and
the seat sharing formula will be finalised at a meeting with
Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan tomorrow," he said.
