Sharad Pawar

Mumbai, Nov 13: Sharad Pawar’s NCP is demanding Chief Minister’s position if all the three parties Congress, Shiv Sena and NCP join hands to form a coalition government in Maharashtra .The NCP and Sena will have the CM on a rotational basis if such a government is established. The Shiv Sena is still in negotiations with the Congress and Sharad Pawar’s NCP to work out a political coalition to form government in Maharashtra.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel claimed that it wouldn’t be prudent to jump into an alliance with the Shiv Sena without getting a better picture of the situation. “First, we will negotiate (among ourselves). Once we have some clarity, we will talk to the Shiv Sena,” he said.

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray denied claims that its ideological differences with the Congress and the NCP will result in an unstable coalition. “We are from different ideologies but we can come together,” he told reporters earlier this evening. “The BJP and Shiv Sena were together for many years but now Shiv Sena has to go with the Congress-NCP. We’ll hold further talks with both of them.”

NCP chief Sharad Pawar and senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said the two parties would discuss the pros and cons of forming a government with the Uddhav Thackeray-led party and then take a decision on supporting it.

“We need to clarify certain things and also discuss a common minimum programme before taking a decision [on support to Sena],”said Patel, after meeting Pawar and other NCP leaders. He said the two parties got a proposal from the Sena to form a government with it only on Monday and would need to discuss the same with each other first.

“We won’t go ahead unless we are clear about what would be the policies and programmes of the government,” said Pawar.

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday took a jibe at the possibility of a government in Maharashtra where all the three parties viz. Shiv Sena, the Congress and the NCP were trying to join hands to form a grand alliance and agree for a Chief Minister belonging to Sharad Pawar’s party, saying, “first of all let them have a Nikaah”.

On being asked, if there is a scenario of NCP Chief Minister in Maharashtra then what will be his party’s stand, Owaisi said: “Pehle Nikaah Hoga, Uske Baad Sochenge Ki Beta Hoga Ya Beti Hogi. Abhi Toh Nikaah Hi Nahi Hua.” (the marriage comes before we start thinking about the child, there is nothing to consider now as the marriage has not taken place yet.

Owaisi said, BJP and Shiv Sena are like ‘Ram and Shyam’ (brothers) and both believed in the ideology of Hindutva. It is true that people of Maharashtra need a government. As far as our party’s stand is considered then we will not support BJP or Shiv Sena led government in the state.
