No issue if NCP sits in opposition post 2014 polls: Prithviraj Chavan
Mumbai: Taking a dig at NCP chief Sharad Pawar for his remark that NCP might reconsider continuing its alliance with the UPA in 2014 elections to Lok Sabha and state Assembly, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Tuesday said it was fine if the party has decided to sit in opposition.
"Let the results come..If they (NCP) want to sit in the opposition, then what is the issue," Chavan told reporters here when asked to comment on the NCP chief`s statement.
Ruling out the possibility of mid-term polls at Centre, Chavan said the NCP and Congress had been contesting local-level elections against each other.
"I don`t think there is any possibility of mid-term polls. We contest elections against each other at the local level," he said.
On state government`s drought mitigation programme, the chief minister said that "so far, Rs 900 crore have been spent for this purpose, while Rs 1,000-1,100 crore would be additionally required to tackle the drought-like situation".
