Uddhav Thackeray unanimous choice for Mah CM: Sharad Pawar

Uddhav Thackeray unanimous choice for Mah CM: Sharad Pawar

Mumbai, Nov 22 (UNI) The Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress meeting concluded on Friday with a call to Sena President Uddhav Thackeray to accept the post of Maharashtra Chief Minister.

Emerging from the two-hour meeting, NCP President Sharad Pawar indicated that a consensus had evolved on Mr Thackeray's name for the top post.

"There is unanimity on the name of Uddhav Thackeray for CM post… Now, he must take it up," Mr Pawar said.

On his part, Mr Thackeray briefly said that the discussions were held in detail and efforts were on to ensure that no issues were left out.

The proposed Maha Vikas Aghadi, comprising Sena-NCP-Congress is likely to hold a press conference on Saturday, where the final details will be shared with the media.

"After the press conference tomorrow, we shall make attempts to stake claim at the earliest possible opportunity," NCP National Spokesperson Nawab Malik said.



Earlier in the day, Mr Malik remarked, "Finally, Sharad Pawar has outsmarted the alleged 'Chanakya' of Indian politics as the three parties appear set to stake claim to the Maharashtra government."

Though referring to Union Home Minister and BJP President Amit Shah, without taking name, he tweeted, "The throne of Delhi failed to make Maharashtra bend before it… Jai Maharashtra!"
