‘Congress to contest all polls separately’: Maha Head Nana Patole
Asserting that Congress would be the biggest party in 2024 in the state, he said that no amount of sidelining will make Congress go.
New Delhi: Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole on Saturday, made it clear that Congress will contest all local body and assembly elections separately.
Addressing Congress workers in Amravati’s Tivasa, he asked, ‘Don’t you want to make Nana Patole as CM in 2024?’. Asserting that Congress would be the biggest party in 2024 in the state, he said that no amount of sidelining will make Congress go.
“While speaking in Amravati, Patole said, “I am the Congress chief of state. So, I will give the point of view of my party. I don’t know what he (Sharad Pawar) said but Congress has made it very clear that we will be going solo in all local body elections and assembly polls. Don’t you want to see Nana Patole made CM?”
Miffed with Pawar’s recent praise for Sena, he said, “Congress is the original party. We don’t need anybody’s certificate. Even if somebody (Pawar) is sidelining us, that doesn’t mean Congress will be sidelined. Congress will only remain the top party in Maharashtra by 2024.” Furthermore, he slammed the Modi govt for its COVID mismanagement, highlighting oxygen, drugs, and injection shortage. He also claimed that PM Modi did not have time to meet farmers who have been protesting for 6 months now.
