About NCP



Welcome to the Nationalist Congress Party [NCP]


It was on 25th May 1999 that the Nationalist leaders Shri Sharad Pawar, Shri P. A. Sangma and Shri Tariq Anwar with hundreds of their political supporters assembled at No. 6, Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Road, New Delhi and took the historic decision to form a new Political Party under the name 'Nationalist Congress Party'. Shri Sharad Pawar was elected President and Shri P. A. Sangma and Shri Tariq Anwar, General Secretaries of the party. It is heartening that indian political parties spanning the entire gamut of ideological spectrum have generally accepted the imperatives of higher growth with grace and pragmatism. There is no hesitation in accepting the fact that finally India is today poised to come out of the cocoon of its sluggish growth rate and become a newly awakening economic power.


Formation of the Party


25th May 1999 is the Red Letter Day for the country. It was on that day Nationalist leaders Shri Sharad Pawar, Shri P. A. Sangma, Shri Tariq Anwar and hundreds of their political supporters assembled at No. 6, Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Road, New Delhi and took the historic decision to form a new Political Party under the name 'Nationalist Congress Party'. Shri Sharad Pawar was elected President, Shri P. A. Sangma and Shri Tariq Anwar, as General Secretaries of that party.

The issue raised by Shri Sharad Pawar, Shri P. A. Sangma and Shri Tariq Anwar that no person of foreign origin shall adorn the highest seats of power like the President of India, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Chief of Army or Election Commission of our country, though turned down by the coteries that managed the Congress (I) soon it became evidently clear that they only echoed the thinking of the people, whose ancestors with throbbing spirit of nationalism and craze for democracy and equality had sacrificed even their lives in their fight against slavery, political, social and economic. Hundreds of leaders and thousands of workers of Congress all over the country came forward to strengthen the hands of the national leaders and to take up the party organisation work.
