Discussions between the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on government formation in Maharashtra have completed, said senior party leader Prithviraj Chavan. Chavan said that there is complete unanimity between them and both the parties will now have a discussion with Shiv Sena tomorrow. “Congress and NCP have completed discussions on all issues. There is complete unanimity. Tomorrow in Mumbai, we will have a meeting with our other alliance parties. Later in the day, we will have a discussion with Shiv Sena,” Chavan said.
Former Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan said the power-sharing formula among the three parties will be disclosed when the alliance partners, which will include the Sena, announce their common minimum programme.
The Congress and NCP leaders had held a marathon meeting on Wednesday to thrash out details of their alliance as they work to form a new government in the state in tie-up with Sena.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MP Bhavana Gawali speaking in the Lok Sabha on Thursday urged Congress president Sonia Gandhi and NCP supremo Sharad Pawar to form government in Maharashtra at the earliest to resolve the problems of farmers.
Speaking on the plight of farmers during Zero Hour, she said the condition of farmers is very bad in Maharashtra due to drought and there is urgent need to do something in this regard.
She said her party's president Uddhav Thackeray has been talking about farmers' plight and is very keen to help them by providing relief in their debt.
"So, I will request Congress president madam Sonia Gandhi and NCP leader Sharad Pawar to form government in the state at the earliest to help farmers," she said, adding that to help Thackeray in his cause.
