Congress and NCP chief’s Sonia Gandhi and Sharad Pawar respectively went for a series of meetings with their core group and party cadre to discuss the political assimilations.
Amidst this, Shive Sena’s senior leader and MP Sanjay Raut made statements on records that their party is ready to form government in Maharastra with the support of Congress and NCP and lashed out of the BJP government for creating the political turmoil. Reportedly, 39 Congress leader has submitted a written copy to Sonia Gandhi conveying their nod to the coalition with Shiv Sena. NCP and Sena who have been loggerheads during the election canvas have however joined hands and apparently the former has agreed to give the CM post to the latter.
