Mumbai, Sep 12 (ANI): Congress party has begun shortlisting candidates aspiring for party's nomination for the October 13 assembly elections in Maharashtra.

Congress party, which is running a coalition government with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Maharashtra for the second term in a row, is yet to sort out hiccups on seat sharing with its ally.

As the days for nominations to open on September 18 draws close, state Congress party leaders went in a huddle in Mumbai to screen aspirants seeking 'ticket' to contest polls on the party symbol.

"I have given my profile, I have told about major problems in our area including drinking water and irrigation and people do not get benefited from the policies of the government," said Anil Chandra Kumar Gupta, an aspirant from Tiroda seat of Gondia district.

Congress party, which also heads the central coalition, is on a high after its good performance in the April-May general elections. (ANI)
