Congress 'not weak', working aggressively

Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar has defended the Maharashtra Congress, saying it is "not weak" and working aggressively at the grass-root level, as he dismissed suggestions that state leaders of the Grand Old Party are missing in the perception battle ahead of the Assembly polls.

Pawar also trashed senior Congress leader Sushilkumar Shinde's comment that the latter's party and the NCP have become "tired".

Shinde may himself have grown "tired", he remarked.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief

Minister Devendra Fadnavis are leading the BJP's poll campaign.

Leaders of the ruling party, however, have been saying that, except Pawar, no opposition leader from Maharashtra is seen in the poll campaign, implying the state Congress leaders are missing in the perception battle. PTI
