india Updated: May 06, 2009 14:41 IST

NCP state president RR Patil has favoured setting up of a joint committee to probe into allegations of sabotage by both Congress and NCP workers during just concluded Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra.

"We are ready to form a joint committee to go through the reported sabotage by both party leaders and workers against each other," Patil who was here to condole the demise of Vidarbha Sahitya Sangh former president Prof Ram Shewalkar, told reporters, on Tuesday.

He said the proposal for such a panel has come from Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president Manikrao Thakre and "we have no problem", he said.

Patil said it was due to untiring efforts of lakhs of party workers of both parties, Congress-NCP would be getting maximum seats in Lok Sabha elections held last month.

The diferences if any between two parties might have surfaced due to local level politics and difference, he said.

Congress-NCP will enhance its position as compared to 2004 in entire state and the combine will get 30-32 seats, he added.

Earlier, Patil accompanied by city unit presidents former MLA Ashok Dhawad and Girish Gandhi visited Shewalkar house and offered condolences.
