Maharashtra Congress motormouth Nana Patole now says the decision to contest the 2024 Maharashtra Assembly election alone will be taken by the party. “Like the Nationalist Congress Party took the decision in 2014, we have our own strategy,” Nana Patole, who is the state Congress chief said.
Just this morning, Congress leaders met National Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar to assure him that Congress chief Nana Patole’s statements that allegedly angered leaders in the alliance, would not be repeated.
NCP sources informed that a few MVA leaders were angry with recent statements made by Patole about his party’s ‘growing influence in Maharashtra’.
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Ashok Chouhan, state party in-charge HK Patil and Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat met Pawar at his residence in Silver Oak.
“Many leaders in Maha Vikas Aghadi were getting angry with Nana Patole’s controversial statements, so today HK Patil and other Congress leaders met Pawar Sahab and assured him that such rhetoric will not happen again,” NCP sources told sources.
