Terming rain as a blessing from God, he said that NCP will do a miracle in Satara district.

“I picked the wrong candidate during the Lok Sabha elections. I openly accept it. But I am happy that people of Satara are waiting for October 21 to rectify that mistake,” he said.

NCP is contesting election in alliance with the Congress in Maharashtra where 288 seats are at stake.

The state will go to polls on October 21 and the counting of votes will take place on October 24.
