Maha Impasse: After Pawar-Sonia's high-profile meet, NCP-Cong to deliberate again to discuss way forward

NCP President Sharad Pawar met Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi's residence amidst the President's rule in Maharashtra.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted that in a day or two, representatives from NCP and Congress will meet in Delhi to discuss the way forward.

The meeting was very crucial and will reportedly be regarding the government formation in Maharashtra. Nawab Malik, National spokesperson of the NCP, told mediapersons yesterday that NCP President Sharad Pawar will meet interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi, followed by a meeting of the top leaders of both the parties on Tuesday.

"Thereafter, the government formation process will be finalised," Malik said.

Malik made it clear that the objective was to give "a stable government" to the state and any decision would be taken only in consultation with the Congress in the matter.

A first-of-its-kind alliance among the Shiv Sena, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress appears to be taking shape in Maharashtra. However, there were reports earlier that the Congress wants Shiv Sena to shed its Hindutva ideology.
