NCP chief Sharad Pawar will meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi today and their talks are expected to lead to a final call on a tie-up with the Shiv Sena to form a government in Maharashtra. The deadlock over govt formation in the state has been going on for 25 days now.
NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik made the announcement on Sunday evening after a meeting of the party’s core committee at Pawar’s residence in Mumbai. Malik said the core committee was of the view that the current President’s rule in Maharashtra should end, and an “alternative government” should be formed.
The NCP core committee’s meeting, which lasted for over two hours, was attended by Jayant Patil, Dilip walse Patil, Chhagan Bhujbal, Ajit Pawar, Supriya Sule, Sunil Tatkare, Dhananjay Munde and others. #MaharashtraGovtFormation #NCP #SoniaGandhi
