Mumbai: After the Election Commission of India (ECI) recognised the Ajit Pawar-faction as the real Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and handed over the party name and symbol to the faction, the Sharad Pawar-faction is now mulling over the new name for their political party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. As per sources, the leaders of the Sharad Pawar-faction have decided to challenge the ECI’s decision in the court, whereas they have also stepped ahead to get their side registered as a political party with a new name.
