History[edit] The NCP was formed on 25 May 1999, by Sharad Pawar, P. A. Sangma, and Tariq Anwar after they were expelled from the Indian National Congress (INC) on 20 May 1999, for disputing the right of Italian-born Sonia Gandhi to lead the party.[6] At the time of formation of the NCP, the Indian Congress (Socialist) party merged with the new party [7]. Despite the NCP being founded on opposition to the leadership of Sonia Gandhi, it has formed coalitions with the Congress party to form a government on numerous occasions at the state level as well at the federal level. On 20 June 2012, P. A. Sangma quit the NCP to contest in presidential polls.[8] Party symbol[edit] The Election Symbol of NCP is an analogue clock that reads 10:10.[9] The clock is drawn in blue and has two legs and an alarm button. It is situated on a tri-coloured Indian flag[10] Ideology[edit]

According to its website, the NCP is committed to ideals of social justice, expressing support for affirmative action policies for the downtrodden members of society and for ensuring equal opportunities for all. The NCP also believes in the principle of secularism, which they define as "fraternity amongst followers of different faiths." They believe in a decentralised government structure and in upholding a society without discrimination or prejudice. However, its self-proclaimed "cardinal principle" is to "strengthen India
India
as a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic republic" as well as securing "justice, liberty, equality and fraternity" among Indian citizens. Presence in Various States[edit]
