Everything is fine between the Congress party and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and we will contest the upcoming Assembly elections together, said state unit Congress chief Ashok Chavan here on Saturday.
"All is well between the Congress party and the NCP. We will fight the Assembly elections together. Some leaders have expressed their displeasure (against NCP). We will short it out. But this is clear that we will contest the polls in an alliance," Chavan told media persons here after a meeting of the state party leaders.
The former Chief Minister's comments come after reports appeared in a section of media suggesting that some leaders had advocated scrapping ties with their ally NCP.
These leaders had reportedly blamed Sharad Pawar-led NCP of not supporting the Congress candidates in the Lok Sabha elections leading to a humiliating defeat of the party.
Earlier in the day, Mahajan had said, "At least 25 MLAs of the Congress and the NCP are in touch with me. Some of them have either met me personally or called me over the phone or have sent feelers through the third party that they are interested in joining the BJP.
