NCP announces its candidates

Having finalised the 26:22 seat sharing formula with the Congress, NCP yesterday has finalised its 18 candidates in the state for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. The party is likely to swap Raigad and Amravati constituencies with the Congress.

As per the decision taken by the party, Anand Paranjpe, who deserted the Shiv Sena last year will be the party's nominee from the Kalyan constituency. Sanjay Dina Patil, the sitting MP from North East is renominated. Significantly, the party failed to reach the consensus in Sharad Pawar's Madha constituency as many in the party have opposed the name of Vijaysingh Mohite Patil. Similarly, the party is yet to finalise its candidates from Hingoli and Buldhana constituency.

The party's candidates for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections are: Sanjay Dina Patil (North east Mumbai), Sanjiv Naik (Thane), Anand Paranjpe (Kalyan), Supriya Sule (Baramati), Praful Patel (Gondia), Udayanraje Bhosle (Satara), Laxman Jagtap (Maval), Devdatta Nikam (Shirur), Dr. Padmasinh Patil (Osmanabad), Munna Mahadik (Kolhapur), Rajiv Rajle (Ahmednagar), Vijay Bhamble (Parbhani), Chhagan Bhujbal (Nashik), Satish Patil (Jalgaon), Jayant Patil (Hatkanangale), A.T. Pawar/ Jyoti Pawar (Dindori), Suresh Dhas/Jaydutta Kshirsagar (Beed), Arun Gujarati/Manish Jain (Rawer).

NCP will give the Amravati seat to Congress in return for Raigad. The NCP proposed this as the Congress was unable to wrest the Raigad seat from Shiv Sena for three consecutive terms. Similarly, the NCP could not win the Amravati seat, which was unsuccessfully contested by Rajendra Gavai of RPI last time with its support. NCP will most probably field Water Resources Minister Sunil Tatkare, a close aide of Ajit Pawar, from Raigad. However, Congress sources said that the swap is not yet finalised.
