NCP to Go it Alone in Civic Polls in MP

Despite a poll-truck for assembly elections in Maharashtra, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will go it alone in the ensuing civic polls in Madhya Pradesh.

Making above announcement, newly appointed president of the NCP’s MP unit Brijmohan Shrivastava said that his party would present a model of development and set an example of good governance if given an opportunity.

“It would make the people of the state understand the difference between us and other political parties,” he said.

It may be mentioned that all local bodies, including municipal corporations, will go to polls in all the 50 districts of the state in November.

In a press conference, Shrivastava, who recently left Congress to join the NCP, said that his party was committed to work for the development of the state and welfare of the people in keeping with the party’s policies under the guidance of NCP’s national president Sharad Pawar.

Srivastava said that his party would leave no stone unturned in exposing the “misdeeds and anti-people” policies of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“We will fight for the rights of the people tooth and nail,” he asserted. “Power shortage, water crisis, unemployment, rotten condition of roads, deteriorating law and order situation, increasing women victimization, atrocities on the SCs, STs and other weaker sections of society, and employees’ welfare would be the main issues to be taken up by his party,” the state NCP president said.

Ruling out the possibility of having an alliance with any other political party, Srivastava said that the NCP would contest the polls on its own and give priority to fielding such candidates who had far been sidelined by other parties but had the aptitude to serve people.

About leaving congress and joining NCP, he said that he had only left his “mother’s house and went over to her sister’s place”.

He said that he would work with a lot of interest for increasing the NCP’s base in Madhya Pradesh and added that elections to the local bodies would be important for him.

Shrivastava said that he had left the Congress as he felt that would be unable to progress in that party and the NCP offered him better chances.
