NCP Chief Sharad Pawar during a press conference at YB Chavan Centre in South Mumbai on SundayTuljapur: Training his guns on Congress and NCP, PM Narendra Modi said both the parties will not win more than 10 seats each in the Maharashtra Assembly polls.

"You all must have seen the clock (NCP's symbol) showing 10 minutes to 10. Do you know what does that indicate? It indicates that the Congress and the NCP will not be able to win more than 10 seats each in the upcoming polls," Modi said mocking the NCP's election symbol while addressing a poll rally in Maharashtra's Osmanabad district.

The Congress-NCP have looted enough in their 15-year rule and it's now time to bid them farewell, he said.

Making a scathing attack on NCP, Modi on Sunday said that if the Sharad Pawar-led party is voted to power again, it will further increase its "corrupt activities."

"I want to know from you, what did the Congress-NCP give you when they ruled this state. Did they do any good for farmers, for the villages or for cities? Then why do you let them survive? They have looted you enough in all these years, there is no place left for them here anymore," he said.

Terming the NCP as a "Naturally Corrupt Party," Modi said it is not a Rashtravadi (Nationalist) party, but a "bhrashtacharvadi" (corrupt) party.

Ruling himself out of the chief ministerial race, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said he will not take any post of power and will now be seen only in organisational and advisory capacity while in public life.

"I will turn 75 in a couple of years. I have been an elected representative for 48 years out of which 25 years have been in position of power. Now I have decided to stop. I will now be seen in organisational and advisory capacity in the party."

Coming down heavily on BJP for the collapse of their 25-year-old partnership, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday that its erstwhile ally had kept pitching for seats during negotiations citing pre-poll surveys.

"Right from the beginning of the seat-sharing talks, BJP kept citing the so-called survey reports and kept demanding seats accordingly. But I don't understand and don't believe in such surveys. We only believe in hard work and serving the citizens," the Sena president said.

Days after Modi accused Pawar and his kin of "enslaving" people in his stronghold Baramati, the NCP chief hit back at Modi, saying he was compromising the prestige of PM's post by lowering the standard of public debate with personal attacks.
