The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Thursday announced its first list of 11 candidates to contest the Lok Sabha elections from 10 seats in Maharashtra and the Lakshadweep constituency. The list includes four sitting members of Parliament (MPs), including party chief Sharad Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule who will contest from Baramati. Interestingly, the list does not feature senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar’s son, Parth Pawar, who has insisted on contesting from Maval constituency near Pune. We are now expecting MNS to support NCP candidates in those areas where it has a strong presence. In lieu, NCP will share seats with the party in the Assembly elections to be held later in the year,” said a NCP leader, on condition of anonymity.
