The tug-of-war between ruling partners NCP and Congress continues.
After NCP asserted at its recent convention in Pune that it would stake claim to more seats in the upcoming elections, state Congress President Manikrao Thakre said on Monday his party would also seek a bigger share of seats during the 2014 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
NCP, which is keen to spread its footprint in the state, has had a running feud with Congress on sharing of seats.
In the past decade, it has had its way with Congress acceding to its demands. This time, however, the ally seems to be putting its foot down.
"Last elections we conceded their demand. However, our winning percentage was more. This time we will ask for more seats," Thakre said.
Last Lok Sabha election, Congress contested 25 seats in the state winning 17, while NCP fought 23 winning nine.
