Kolhapur, May 4 (UNI) Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh has said that the coming Lok Sabha, state assembly elections will be held as per the new Delimitation and hinted to contest election without any alliance.

Addressing a rally at Bindu chowk here tonight Mr Deshmukh, without naming the alliance partner NCP, said the Congress workers were keen to face the coming election on own strength without forming any alliance, which he also supported and this should be discussed at all level for the interest of the Congress party.

Last elections were contested by the Congress-NCP alliance but after Delimitation reconsideration about alliance became unnecessary as the Congress party was capable to contest elections on its own, Mr Deshmukh said.

Detailing the various works of the Congress led alliance government in the state, Mr Deshmukh said that Maharashtra Government would store its shares of water from Krishna vally in the next two years for which the state government had made budgetery provision of about Rs 6000 crore in current budget.

Referring to Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray's campaigning, Mr Deshmukh said their tussle was family matter for the survival of the two leaders and nothing else.

Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) President Prabha Rao, who presided over the rally, in her speech, attacked NCP chief Sharad Pawar without naming the NCP or Mr Pawar.
