What is the harm of contesting the elections alone

Advised Congress to make him its chief minister
Ramdas Atwale said, “There are 42 Congress MLAs in the Maharashtra government and the government is running with their support. Nana Patol should talk to Uddhav Thackeray and Sharad Pawar and talk to his party about appointing a chief minister for the next two and a half years. If that doesn’t happen, Congress should leave the alliance.
