3 parties want to form a stable government focusing on development, Pawar
On Friday while addressing Press meet NCP President Sharad Pawar said ShivSena-NCP-Congress will form the government soon and will complete 5-year term. There is no possibility of mid-term polls in Maharashtra.
All three parties want to form a stable government which will be development-oriented. There is no possibility of mid-term polls. This government will be formed and it will complete five years. We all will ensure this government runs for five years, Pawar said.
Asked whether the BJP was holding discussion with the NCP over government formation in the state, the former Union minister said his party was holding talks with only the ShivSena, the Congress and its allies and nobody beyond these.
He said the three parties are at present working out a common minimum programme (CMP) that will guide the actions of the government being planned in the state.
Representatives of the three parties met in Mumbai on Thursday and prepared a draft CMP. Pawar is slated to meet Congress President Sonia Gandhi in Delhi on Sunday.

Pawar took a dig at former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis remark that the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress government will not survive for more than six months.
I know Devendra Ji for some years. But I did not know he is a student of astrology too, Pawar expressed.
Pawar took a jibe at Fadnavis over his mi punha yein (I will come again) remark.
It is alright he said it. I was thinking of something else all the while: I will come again, I will come again, I will come again. Now, you (the reporter) is giving some other information, he added.
