The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) have declared its first list of 12 candidates for Lok Sabha polls 2019 , with senior party leader Supriya Sule being fielded from the party stronghold of Baramati. NCP supremo Sharad Pawar announced earlier this week that he will not be contesting in the Lok Sabha election. Maharashtra has 48 Lok Sabha seats.
The party has also given ticket to Mohammad PP Faizal from Lakshadweep. It has also decided to field sitting MPs Udayanraje Bhosale and Dhananjay Mhadik from Satara and Kolhapur, respectively.
The other candidates include Anand Paranjpe (Kalyan) and Sanjay Dina Patil (Mumbai Northeast).
The name of Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghtana leader Raju Shetti, whose party left the NDA and joined the UPA, also figures in the NCP’s list.
