At least 50 MLAs of Congress, NCP in touch with BJP in Maharashtra

Maharashtra Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan's comments came at a time when a string of NCP leaders had deserted the Sharad Pawar-led party ahead of state Assembly elections

.At least 50 Congress and NCP MLAs are in touch with the BJP to switch over ahead of the assembly elections, senior BJP leader and Maharashtra Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan claimed on Sunday.
“Some 50 MLAs of Congress and NCP are in touch with the BJP. Senior NCP leader Chitra Wagh had expressed her desire to join BJP a month back, claiming she had no future left in her parent party. The MLAs are requesting that they wanted to join the BJP ahead of the assembly elections…The Congress is in the shambles and in the next couple of weeks, the NCP will look weaker,” Mahajan said.
