Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majeed Memon on Monday reiterated the stand of the party over deadlock with Congress on seat sharing and said that it should be done on respectable and reasonable terms.

“Seat sharing with Congress should be on respectable and reasonable terms. We don't want the alliance to break,” Memon said.

The NCP leader also said that it does not matter to the party whether Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or Shiv Sena contest the October 15 Maharashtra Assembly elections alone or together.

He added that the Shiv Sena-BJP seat sharing deadlock is due to issues like ego, naming of chief ministerial candidate and accommodating other groups.

“However, Congress and NCP are facing issues on 5-6 seats which will be sorted soon,” he added.

NCP is scheduled to hold a core committee meeting today to take a final call on the seat sharing issue.

Party chief Praful Patel had given an ultimatum to the Congress on Sunday on its demand to contest on 144 seats.
