Mumbai: Slashing of power tariff by 50 per cent and abolishing the toll will be among main issues the BJP-led NDA in Maharashtra will be highlighting in forthcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections even as it today set up a panel of its constituent parties to thrash out a seat-sharing agreement.

The alliance will also organise a morcha at Azad Maidan in South Mumbai on February 25 on these issues and hold a rally at Ichalkaranji in western Maharashtra on January 30.  “Toll free Maharashtra and 50 per cent reduction in power tariff will be some of the issues the alliance would highlight in elections,” senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde said.

He was speaking to reporters after the leaders of Shiv Sena, BJP and their allies RPI (A), Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghtana (SSS), and Rashtriya Samaj Party (RSP) met here to discuss the strategy for upcoming polls.

Prominent among those present at the meeting were Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray, RPI leader Ramdas Athavale, SSS chief Raju Shetty, RSP leader Mahadev Jankar, besides Munde.
