Party named Nilesh Patel as its candidate in a press conference here on Monday. Patel joined the party four years back.
“NCP will contest one seat in every district and Akota is our choice in Vadodara district”, NCP state unit president Jayant Patel said while addressing the press conference.
The announcement is intriguing, given the fact that negotiations between Congress and NCP over a possible tie-up are still in progress. At present NCP has 3 MLAs in 182-member assembly.
