NCP announces five candidates for Maha Assembly Election

Pawar has taken on the task of reviving the party and selecting candidates after the Lok Sabha polls in which the NCP could win only four seats.

NEW DELHI: The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Wednesday took the lead in announcing its first list of five candidates for the Maharashtra assembly polls.

Party chief Sharad Pawar, who was in Beed, announced the names of five candidates. Addressing party followers, Pawar said, “There is a completely different situation in the state—the farmers are upset and they had trusted the government to help them with programmes to get them out of their misery. Some 16,000 farmers have committed suicide. The farmers are not getting the price for their produce.”

The NCP chief described the unemployment situation in the country as “frightening” and said the state government, while not being able to generate employment, has not been able to even save the number of companies from shutting down.


In an apparent swipe at Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, Pawar claimed that under his reign Nagpur has become the crime capital of the state. Pawar has taken on the task of reviving the party and selecting candidates after the Lok Sabha polls in which the NCP could win only four seats.
