RPI may field candidates on around 10 seats in alliance with BJP: Athawale
Republican Party of India president and Union minister Ramdas Athawale on Wednesday said his party may field candidates on around 10 seats in alliance with the BJP for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
His party may field candidates on 10-12 seats dominated by Muslims, Scheduled Castes and backward classes in alliance with the BJP, said Athawale, whose party is a constituent of the NDA at the national level.
In response to a question on farmers' stir over the farm laws, Athawale said those protesting do not come from the farming community and claimed that 80 per cent of farmers are still with Modi and the BJP.
Athawale stressed the need for inter-caste marriagea and said this is an effective way to bring social harmony in today's scenario.
