Sushilkumar Shinde rakes up merger between Congress, NCP
| Wednesday | 9th October, 2019
Amidst ongoing campaigning for the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly election, veteran Congress leader and former union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Tuesday raked up the issue of merger of Congress and Nationalist Congress Party in a serious bid for the Congress party's revival in the country.
Shinde, who recently lost the Lok Sabha election from Solapur seat, said Congress and NCP are both shattered due to successive defeats.
He hinted that both parties want the merger to happen quickly but none of them is opening up their cards.
Shinde's statement deserves importance as Congress party, after a humiliating defeat in Lok Sabha polls and its rout in Maharashtra, is in total disarray.
Besides, several Congress leaders including leader of opposition in the state assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil have called it a day and joined BJP.
