Clarifying that allies in Maharashtra's ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) are united, he further said, "NCP workers should not have misconceptions or misunderstandings about our partners because in the coming days we have to contest elections together," he further added.

The BMC election is expected to happen in 2022. As of now, Shiv Sena is the ruling party in BMC with 92 Corporaters while Congress has 30 Corporaters and 9 from NCP, in the house of a total 227 seats.

The NCP leader further said that nobody in Maharashtra should be worried about CAA NRC and NPR, as the party chief Sharad Pawar and the ruling government had already given their word to the people.

"People of Maharashtra should not get scared of this decision of CAA, NRP and NPR as even state's Home Minister Anil Deshmukh have also assured this. Some people are trying to create a debate on this but if anyone tries to create a misconception then NCP workers should tell them that Sharad Pawar and MVA ministers have given us word that because of this decision no one's citizenship in Maharashtra will be affected," the deputy chief minister said.
