- Dilip Walse Patil said Mavia’s alliance is a priority
Nagpur. Former Home Minister and NCP Liaison Chief Dilip Walse Patil said that the party is gearing up to win more seats in the upcoming Municipal Corporation, Vis and Lok Sabha elections. For this, a meeting is being held with the workers of entire Vidarbha including Nagpur. Work is being done to strengthen the organization at the booth level. The first priority in the elections will be to contest the elections with Mavia alliance. Discussions have also started with Congress leaders at the local level for this. NCP is preparing to contest the elections alone even if there is no alliance. He was talking to reporters at Ravi Bhavan. He said, there will be efforts to win the maximum number of seats in the municipal elections. Candidates will be given from here in the upcoming assembly elections as well. He said that the NCP is in a strong position in Vidarbha including Nagpur. The two MLAs from Nagpur district were Ramesh Bang and Anil Deshmukh. There will be this attempt to increase seats in the next election. City president Duneshwar Pethe, Salil Deshmukh, Prakash Gajbhiye, Bandu Umarkar and others were present on the occasion.
BJP’s failure will be taken to the masses
Patil said that the BJP had promised 24×7 drinking water to the people of Nagpur but failed to do so. Promises to bring industries here to employ local youth have also failed. There are many problems with basic facilities. NCP will go to the people on these issues. On the question of Uddhav Thackeray and Shinde group’s claim about Dussehra Maidan Shivaji Park in Mumbai, he said that the matter went to court but the ruling group should have understood. It is the responsibility of the ruling party to maintain law and order. Referring to the NIA raid on PFIs in Mumbai, he said the central agency must have some information. This campaign is being conducted not only in Maharashtra but across the country. In the context of reservation for the Muslim community, he said the state government should clarify its views.
Patil held a staff meeting at Gauri Kumbhar Auditorium Wathoda in the morning and Ahbab Community Hall Jafarnagar in the evening and appealed to them to be ready for the upcoming elections and also gave them instructions. In the executive meeting held at Rabi Bhavan, he said, “Be ready to fight the elections alone or Aghadi.” Strengthen the organization down to the booth level. Speed up the PR campaign. In the absence of former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, some office bearers and workers spoke of lack of energy. Patil said that the senior leaders of the party will always have guidance, cooperation and support. Go out in public, communicate as much as possible. People will get support in next election and party will do well.
