Maha:Hectic parleys on b/w probable allies to hammer out consensus for forming govt

Mumbai, Nov 13 (UNI) A day after the President Rule was imposed in the State, Maharashtra on Wednesday witnessed a series of hectic meetings and discussions at various levels among the Nationalist Congress Party(NCP), Shiv Sena and Congress in a bid to form the government.
The government formation attempts hinge on issues like the post of Chief Minister, Deputy CM, the distribution of cabinet portfolios among the three prospective allies, a Common Minimum Programme (CMP) agreeable to all, and despite differing ideologies, giving a stable and sustainable government for the next five years, said a Sena leader.
Earlier, Sena President Uddhav Thackeray called up Congress President Sonia Gandhi – for the second time in two days – and also met senior leader Ahmed Patel.
NCP President Sharad Pawar held meeting with his top leaders and legislators on Wednesday where he allayed the apprehensions of the newly elected MLAs, a party official said.
Mr Pawar assured that the President's Rule would not hamper the government formation efforts, the State would not plunge into mid-term elections, and that a new government would be in place soon.
In the afternoon, senior Congress leaders including State chief Balasaheb Thorat, former CM Ashok Chavan and others met Mr Thackeray, who later told mediapersons that "the discussions with the Congress-NCP are proceeding in the right directions" but declined to elaborate.
On Wednesday evening, the Congress leaders again assembled at former CM Prithviraj Chavan's home ,similarly, the NCP leaders gathered at Pawar's house to prepare for a scheduled meeting of the two parties later tonight.
Responding to a media query, Mr Chavan categorically denied that there was any reluctance from any quarters to the name of Uddhav Thackeray as the probable Sena CM.
Notably, the Sena's long alliance with the BJP collapsed on the issue of sharing the CM's post, and the Congress-NCP do not want a repeat situation now.
The two parties have also set up separate five-member committees to draft a CMP for discussions with the Sena, and its' approval to pave the way for the swearing-in at the earliest date.
The CMP will be born out of the existing manifestos of the three parties, which was prepared for the October 21 assembly elections; from the manifestos agreeable points will be sifted and the contentious issues will be hammered with discussions.
The agreeable points would comprise issues of the farmers, the commoners, downtrodden and marginalised sections of society, economic issues like unemployment, the problems of recurring droughts-floods in different parts of the State, among others.
A senior NCP leader said these detailed exercises are underway "to ensure a proper balance of power among the three potential allies and prevent any kind of a crisis midway" during the next government's five-year tenure.
