Pawar rules out merger of NCP with Congress
New Delhi, Aug 19 (ANI): Ahead of the assembly elections in Maharashtra, Union Agricultural Minister and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of merger with the Congress Party.
Pawar also termed the statements by some Congress leaders on the issue as cheap publicity.
"I can't understand why these days they are raising questions about it, why they are not appealing to other parties to merge? Should I say that the Congress should merge with my party and these are all cheap public statements," Pawar said.
Pawar added that he would be happy if both the parties go together or don't go together in the upcoming elections. (ANI)
