Seat-sharing with Congress will be finalised soon: Pawar

MUMBAI, SEPT. 12. The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief, Sharad Pawar, has said the seat-sharing arrangement between the Congress and the NCP for the October 13 Assembly polls in Maharashtra would be finalised in a day or two.

Talking to reporters here today, he said `there are no push or pulls in the seat-sharing talks.''

He favoured inclusion of the Vidarbha statehood issue in the joint manifesto.

On the delay in the announcement of the final list by both the Congress and the NCP, he said, ``on a few seats both the sides are assessing their strengths differently.'' But ``there will be cent per cent agreement on all the seats.''

When his attention was drawn to the Mumbai NCP unit's threat to the Congress to indulge in ``friendly contests'' in the metropolis, he disapproved it saying ``we will fight all the 288 Assembly seats in association with the Congress. There should not be any disagreement over it.''

The Mumbai NCP threat came after its demand for 14 seats was turned down by the Congress, which is willing to allot only seven seats. — PTI
