NEW DELHI: Congress Working Committee (CWC) member Dinesh Gundu Rao on Friday backed the Shiv Sena’s pitch for his party leader Rahul Gandhi joining hands with NCP chief Sharad Pawar to align all opposition parties together to take on the ruling BJP at the Centre, and said it’s necessary.

Rao, who is All India Congress Committee (AICC) incharge of Goa, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, said he is sure that Gandhi and Pawar would be in touch to take the matter forward.

“It is necessary and I am sure there is a conversation happening already.

I welcome whatever Shiv Sena has said. It’s a good suggestion,” added Rao, a former Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President and son of former Chief Minister late R Gundu Rao.
