Amid Maharashtra Logjam, Pawar To Meet PM Modi Today; ‘Sena To Form Govt By Dec’, Says Sanjay Raut
Maharashtra Political Crisis: Ahead of Congress-NCP meet in the national capital on Wednesday evening over the discussion on the possible alliance and forming the government in Maharashtra, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi today to discuss farmers’ crisis. The two leaders will meet in the afternoon at around 12.30 pm. The meeting between the NCP chief and Prime Minister Narendra Modi comes amid the intense political activity to form a government in Maharashtra. This also comes after PM Modi praised Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), for showing discipline during parliamentary proceedings.
Meanwhile, a meeting between the NCP and Congress is scheduled for today. Among the issues likely to be discussed is their likely alliance if they join hands with the ideologically opposite Shiv Sena to the contours of their tie-up in the coming polls.
On the other hand, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has once again exploded confidence over forming the government in the state by his party. Speaking to the media today, Raut said that the process is underway and that Shiv Sena will form the government in Maharashtra before December. “The process to form the government will complete in next 5-6 days and a popular & strong government will be formed in Maharashtra before December. The process is going on.” He added that everything will be cleared by tomorrow afternoon, hinting some big development in the state politics.
When asked about his view on the meeting between Sharad Pawar and PM Modi which might likely revolve around the current scenario in Maharashtra, Raut said that it’s not a big deal if a leader wants to meet the Prime Minister in this country.
