Maha govt formation: Sonia deputes three senior leaders to meet Pawar


New Delhi, Nov 12 (IANS): A day after Maharashtra Governor B.S. Koshyari invited the NCP to form the government in the state, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday spoke to NCP chief Sharad Pawar to discuss plans to form the government and sent three senior party leaders to Mumbai to hold discussions with him.

Congress General Secretary K.C. Venugopal took to Twitter saying: "Congress President Sonia Gandhi spoke to Sharad Pawar today morning and deputed Ahmed Patel, Mallikarjun Kharge and myself for holding further discussions with Pawar."

He further said that the three leaders were going to Mumbai to meet Pawar at the earliest. On Monday evening, Sonia even after holding two crucial meetings with senior party leaders kept the Shiv Sena guessing over the Congress supporting it in Maharashtra to form the government.

The Congress issued a statement in the evening saying it will hold "further discussion" with its alliance partner Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), which was all inclined to support the Shiv Sena in the state.


In the statement issued after the meeting chaired by Sonia, the party said: "The Congress Working Committee met on Monday and had a detailed discussion on the situation in Maharashtra after which a consultation was held with Maharashtra Congress leaders. The Congress President (Sonia Gandhi) has spoken to Sharad Pawar. The party will have further discussion with the NCP."

On Monday, Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray also spoke to Sonia seeking her support to form the government. On Sunday, the Governor invited Shiv Sena to form government in the state after the BJP said that it was unable to form the government. The Governor then on Monday evening called on the NCP as the third largest party in the state to attempt government formation.

    Too late! Ahmed Patel, the Treasurer, has no role to play. Kharge has no topic to broach. For Mrs Gandhi, the ghost writer has nothing to write.
    Have a nice meal in Mantralaya canteen subsidized by us and go back. Pay the to & fro VIP airfare please.

    This is I feel the game played by daku and feku.
    they took enough time to merge with Shiv Sena. That time the governor did not show any urgency.

    But once it was sure that BJP is out of the game, he did not give enough time for Shiv Sena and now NCP.

    I think they are pushing for president rule. Just doing this dramas to keep public happy.

    till the changu mangu jodi of feku and daku are there on top, this country and every state will suffer.

    "Keep BJP out of Maharashtra, at any cost"
    Even then Mota Bhai may be having his schemes to achieve pre-set goal.
    First, let the opposition make it
    We will play our ploy to break it.

    Congress please clarify and confirm and then take the decision:

    1. Whether Shiv Sena is communal or Secular party?
    2. Whether Shiv Sena still feels proud in demolishing Babri Masjid?
    3. Whether Shiv Sena still bats for Hindu Raastra as claimed by Bala Saheb?

    Rathnakara A, Shirva ,

    1. Shiv Sena is Secular party because it is opposing BJP (Definition of secular is opposing BJP)
    2. All must feel proud in demolishing Babri Masjid after supreme court verdict
    3. Present day Shiv Sena is not the same as the one which was headed by Bala Saheb. Hence, question is invalid.

    Mota bhai is quiet now. He is waiting for cong, ncp, ss to form the govt. Once its done, he will start buying "unsatisfied" MLA's and form BJP govt. Anyways, though our cities have not become smart, but Mota bhai has become 1.

    Sonia is making desperate efforts to save congress image from total down fall and liquidation from present political scenario. What a prestigious position the party was enjoying and at present they have become the tail enders to support any party. So disgusting.

    Best is to restrict very minimum political parties (2 or 3) so they can get the majority in future elections.
