Senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan on Friday said that all three parties (NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena) had positive discussions about govt formation. While addressing the media Chavan said, “We've reached consensus on many issues but talks to continue tomorrow. Whatever Sharad Pawar Ji has said is on record, I won't speak on that. When we've discussed all things, we'll speak on them.”
Earlier NCP president Sharad Pawar said that the new government in Maharashtra will be formed under the leadership of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.
Emerging from a marathon meeting of top leaders of the Congress, the NCP and the Sena, who are making efforts to form government in Maharashtra, Pawar said there was a consensus on Thackeray’s leadership.
“There is a consensus that leadership of the government will be with Uddhav Thackeray,” he told reporters after the meeting.
He said the meeting at Nehru Centre in central Mumbai deliberated extensively on finalising an agenda for governance.
