Any announcement will happen only after meeting with the ShivSena tomorrow — Common Minimum Programme, power-sharing formula, etc”
Mumbai: The three-party alliance in Maharashtra between ShivSena, NCP, and Congress has named their team as ‘Maharashtra Vikasa Aaghadi’ and will be guided by the “spirit of the Constitution” in the running of the government.
On Thursday these broad contours of government formation between ideologically incompatible parties seem to be emerging after the Congress Working Committee met in Delhi. The CWC was preceded by a joint meeting of the NCP and Congress on Wednesday night
Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan on Thursday said there is complete unanimity between his party and alliance partner Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) where government formation in the state is concerned. “After the discussions are completed and agreed on all points, the media will be briefed on the architecture of the alliance,” Chavan said, adding that the ShivSena has been kept in the loop on all discussions. “Any announcement will happen only after meeting with the Shiv Sena tomorrow — Common Minimum Programme, power-sharing formula, etc.”
The Congress Working Committee has reviewed the political scenario in Maharashtra, a day after it held a quick meeting with the NCP on forming an alliance together with ShivSena to form a government in the state. Congress general secretary KC Venugopal told the media after a meeting at party chief Sonia Gandhi’s 10 Janpath residence that the CWC was briefed on the discussion between NCP and Congress on Wednesday and a final decision on Maharashtra is expected by tomorrow.
The government in Maharashtra might allot two deputy CM on from Congress and another from NCP. From congress, Balasaheb Thorat may be sworn as Deputy CM and NCP is yet to announce.
Ashok Chavan or Prithviraj Chavan might be appointed as assembly Speaker.
There are speculations made by sources that Uddhav Thackeray might become CM of Maharashtra.
