National Congress Party President Sharad Pawar while addressing the press on Friday informed that Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party and Congress alliance will stake claim to form Maharashtra’s next government and Uddhav Thackeray has been chosen by consensus to lead Maharashtra.
The announcement came after a meeting between leaders of the three parties at Mumbai’s Nehru Centre to seal the ground rules for the alliance.
The Shiv Sena, which had broken a three decades alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party over its refusal to share the chief minister’s chair, will get to hold the top post in the government for the next five years.
The alliance leaders will decide tomorrow when to seek an appointment with Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to stake claim, Pawar told reporters.
Earlier today Sanjay Raut officially confirms that Shiv Sena will get Chief Minister post for complete 5 years term and says all three parties have agreed to it.
