Mumbai, Oct 23 (ANI): Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has said that Congress high command deserves the credit for the victory of the Congress-NCP alliance for the third consecutive term in Assembly polls.
Talking to reporters here on Thursday, Chavan said: "I will credit this win to Sonia Gandhi who always helped works in Maharashtra and was also present during the campaign. I will also give credit to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi and other state party leaders. This is truly a result of team work and we could record this win only because of it."
