Party spokesperson Nawab Malik said prospects of early polls looms large owing to the situation in Parliament. “As some of the allies have withdrawn their support.

Pawar has asked his party men to be prepared for polls anytime. Pawar has said the partty would be contesting the Lok Sabha polls in alliance with the Congress and it would be following the existing seat-sharing agreement to contest 22 of 48 seats in the state, he said.
