“NCP will play a important role in the upcoming Gujarat elections and will win important seats. There is a under current in Gujarat where the people need change and we as one of the opposition party like the Congress and will be a part of the change,” said Praful Patel senior NCP leader in Vadodara.

He said the upcoming Gujarat elections is important for the party as there is an undercurrent in the state where people need change and they will play a vital role in it. They also denied of any coalition with either Congress or the BJP and fight on their own.

“Earlier we decide to field our candidates on all 182 seats but later strategically decides to put our candidates on 58 seats in both the phases. We will declare our manifesto in couple of days and will not go for any coalition as of now. The NCP will play a vital role in the elections and the fight is mainly with the BJP,” said Patel.

On Hardik Patel matter he said it’s not him but the matter of Patidar just like Maratha in Maharashtra and Jat in UP and Haryana. What the Congress said to them is not so easy but he believe that the issue can be resolved in a lawful manner and there is a way for everything.

At the end he confidently said to win in the 58 seats and mark their presence in the elections.
