"If Narendra Modi won in Gujarat because of the division of secular votes then it is time to introspect why it happened? Our bigger partner chose to pitch candidates against us in the state ignoring the sacrifice we have made all these years," Patel said while addressing NCP members during the inauguration of a new party office in Mumbai.

"The days when only one party ruled are over. For the next 25 years, it will be coalition politics and every party has their say," Patel said.

This is not the first time a UPA ally tried to assert itself in an attempt to send a message to the Congress party.
