NCP miffed at Cong treatment in polls

Miffed at the way it was treated by the Congress in the just concluded Assembly polls, the NCP has hinted that it would have to rethink on its alliance with the UPA in the 2014 Lok Sabha and assembly polls.

In the Gujarat polls, which saw BJP-led Narendra Modi retaining power, NCP president and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar said though his party was allotted nine seats, the Congress fielded its candidates in five of them and in the remaining, Congress rebels contested. "This is not the way to work together. This is the reason why the BJP came to power. One has to work together and there should be honesty and commitment. If such a policy continues, we would give a serious thought about the alliance in the coming Lok Sabha and Assembly polls," he said.
