NCP leader Sharad Pawar has stated that a Sena-NCP-Congress government will be formed, which will run for 5 years ,while addressing reporters in Nagpur.
The NCP Supremo is currently meeting farmers in Chargaon village, Nagpur to assess crop damage and will meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi over the weekend to finalise the CMP. Meanwhile, former CM Devendra Fadnavis has declared to his MLAs that BJP will form the government, as per sources.
It may be mentioned here that President's rule was imposed in Maharashtra on Tuesday after Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari was satisfied that none of the parties - Shiv Sena, BJP, Congress, and NCP could form a stable government.
Sena which initially challenged the move in the Supreme Court has put a hold on its plea, as the three parties try to stitch an alliance to form the next government. The Mahayuti alliance fell out with the Sena insisting an equal sharing of CM post for 2.5 years and portfolios, while BJP refused to these demands.
The saffron alliance consisting of the BJP and the Shiv Sena swept the polls in Maharashtra on October 24, winning a combined tally of 161 (BJP- 105, Sena -56), while the 'Maha- Agadhi' alliance (NCP-54, Congress-44) bagged 98 seats in total.
