Sharad Pawar

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) would contest the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Manipur, said party chief Sharad Pawar.

Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Manipur, will be held between February 10 and March 7.

“Of the five states going to the polls, we shall be contesting in three states. We plan to work out alliances with like-minded parties,” Pawar told reporters in Mumbai.

He said that in Uttar Pradesh, the NCP would be part of the Samajwadi Party-led alliance, while in Manipur, the party is cobbling up an understanding with the Congress, with which it shares power in Maharashtra’s Maha Vikas Aghadi government.

“We are in talks with the Congress and the Trinamool Congress in Goa,” Pawar added.
