NCP-Congress joint meeting

Mumbai, Nov 12 : After the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress complete their discussions on government formation in Maharashtra, they would approach the Shiv Sena for talks, top leaders of both parties said here on Tuesday.

Addressing the media jointly with NCP President Sharad Pawar, senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said that Sena President Uddhav Thackeray formally contacted Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi first time on Monday.

“There were many issues that need to be discussed. Both parties have unanimously decided that first we will discuss amongst us (Congress-NCP), then we will talk with Shiv Sena on a common minimum programe and others aspects before anything is finalised,” he said.

Patel also said that the manner in which President’s Rule has been imposed by the government is a mockery of democracy.

“First the BJP was invited, then the Shiv Sena and later the NCP, but the Congress was not even invited by Governor to explore government formation. This is wrong,” he said.

Pawar said that the President’s Rule has come as a relief to both the parties for carrying out discussions.

Sources in both parties unofficially claim that the state would get some “good news” very soon after the discussions and formulas among the various parties bidding for power are finalised.

New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has slammed the government for rise in onion and petrol prices. The price of petrol crossed Rs 75 mark and that of onion has risen to Rs 200 a kg in some parts of the country, according to reports.

Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, “The inflation has made the life of common man worse, prices of onion have crossed Rs 200 in some parts and petrol has crossed Rs 75, but the BJP government is in sleeping mode”.

The prices of essential commodities including the onion which is an important vegetable in Indian Household, have been moving north for quite some time.

Last week Parliament saw a heated debate on the issue of onion price between the treasury and opposition benches, mainly the Congress, with its leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury making remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Ministers Amit Shah and Nirmala Sitharaman.

Chowdhury said, “There is a fire inside the markets across the whole country as the prices of all items have been increasing, especially onion. Centre imports onion on the price of Rs 67 per kg which it is being sold in the market at the price of Rs 130-140 per kg,”

The government says that the price of onion is rising due to unseasonal rain which damaged the crops in many parts of the country. The imported onion will only be available by the first or second week of January.
