Prime News, National, Mumbai, November 13:- Congress leaders from Maharashtra met Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday to discuss the modalities of a ‘common minimum programme’ (CMP) for a possible alliance to form government in the state.
Maharashtra Congress president Balasaheb Thorat, former state chief minister Ashok Chavan and senior party leader Manikrao Thakare held talks with Thackeray at a suburban hotel.
The meeting took place a day after President’s rule was imposed in the state following a report sent to the Centre by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari in which he stated that formation of a stable government was impossible in the current situation despite all his efforts.
Meanwhile, speaking to media after meeting the Congress leaders, Thackeray said discussions have started, whatever decision will be taken we will inform soon.
Before their meeting with Thackeray, the three Congress leaders also met Shiv Sena MP and spokesman Sanjay Raut at a hospital in Mumbai, where the latter underwent an angioplasty procedure on Monday. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
