The Nationalist Congress Party is keen on a partnership with the Congress in the municipal corporation elections to make inroads in Mumbai as this would help them make an impact in the 2014 assembly elections.

 

Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar has clearly indicated that the alliance with the Congress in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation will help them consolidate the party’s position in the city. Of the 227 seats in Mumbai, NCP’s stronghold is restricted to 20-25 seats.

 

In the 2007 civic elections, NCP won 19 seats and Congress 83. The Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance bagged 11 seats — Sena won 87 seats and BJP 29.
