Congress-NCP campaign to focus on farm crisis, economic slowdown, says Nawab Malik
The Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will highlight issues like farm crisis, economic slowdown and unemployment in the run-up to the Assembly elections in Maharashtra, said NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik.
"Unemployment is on the rise, the problem of economic slowdown has deepened and the number of farmers' suicides has gone up. The people are waiting for the change of guard, which is bound to happen," PTI quoted Nawab as saying.
Former chief minister and Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said the Congress would take on the saffron parties on these issues as well as on "the attempts to dismantle Opposition parties."
