NCP on Wednesday said it's ready to discuss Congress's grievances that it (NCP) did not work for the victory of the party (Congress) candidates in ten constituencies.
"Instead of criticising us in public, Congress should provide us a list of party leaders and workers who worked against it's interests in the 10 constituencies. We will also give our list, NCP's Maharashtra unit president RR Patil said.
Responding to a question on Congress demand for a joint fact finding team, Patil said instead of such a joint committee, the two parties should sit together to iron out such differences.
"we do not wish vitiate the atmosphere by making charges against the Congress in public," Patil said.
He said he had convened a meeting of district unit chiefs, observers, LS candidates, ministers and office-bearers to take a review of the just concluded election campaign.
Patil said deliberations at the meeting revolved around preparations for organisational elections and conducting membership drive to expand its base. New panels at the block, district and state levels have also to be constituted.
He said observers have been appointed to conduct the procedure, he said adding that membership drive will resume from May 20.
