- CWC gives support to Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and gives green signal to government
- Congress leaders once again arrive at Sharad Pawar’s house after Congress meeting
- Three party MLAs meet in Maharashtra on Friday
The Working Committee of the Congress (CWC) has given a green signal to the state unit to support the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and join the coalition government. Congress will also be a part of the government along with Shiv Sena, NCP. After the CWC’s decision, senior Congress leaders once again converged at the residence of NCP leader Sharad Pawar and decided the future strategy. On Friday, the three parties will hold meetings with their respective MLAs in Mumbai. On Saturday, the three parties will be presented a claim to form the government by handing over a joint letter of support to the Governor of Maharashtra.
Thorat can be deputy CM:
Amidst the discussion between the Shiv Sena Chief Minister in Maharashtra and one of the Deputy Chief Ministers of the Congress-NCP, Balasaheb Thorat will be the contender for the chair from the Congress. Due to mutual quarrels and lack of top leadership, Thorat took charge of the Congress in the election and the party won 44 seats. This is considered to be a very good performance for the Congress due to its poor condition in the state. The party has attributed this to Thorat’s account. According to party sources, this is the reason that in Maharashtra, a three-party government, Thorat may be the deputy chief minister from the Congress.
Consensus reached in NCP-Congress:
After the NCP-Congress meeting, Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said that both the parties have completed discussions on all issues. We have agreement on all issues. Tomorrow we will have a meeting with our allies in Mumbai. After that, there will be a discussion with Shiv Sena on this day.
