Mumbai: Seat-sharing between the Congress and NCP will be finalised in a week’s time, said a senior Congress leader on Thursday. The ability to win will be the criteria for seat sharing, he added.

The senior leader said that the ability to win would be the primary factor for allocation of seats among alliance partners. Additionally, factors like the position of the candidate in the constituency would be considered.

Deputy leader in the state Legislative Assembly, Mohammed Arif Naseem Khan, told The Asian Age, “The seat-sharing will be finalised in the next seven days with all like-minded parties including the NCP.”

Meanwhile, Congress state president Balasaheb Thorat held a review meeting with the Konkan division of party office-bearers and workers at Airoli in Navi Mumbai.

Addressing the gathering in Navi Mumbai, Mr Thorat said that during the past five years of the BJP-Sena regime, Maharashtra has not experienced development.

The false propaganda of the state government is misleading the people. The failures of the government needs to be exposed before the people. Congress and NCP need to start working with enthusiasm towards forming the next government, he said.

Mr Thorat said that the BJP has not been able to fulfil any of the promises made during the elections.

Farmers, labourers, youth, women, businessmen, dalits, minorities and all sections of the state have been cheated. Fanatics are trying to create unrest, he added.
