Prime News, National (Mumbai), November 11:- With the deadlock over government formation continuing in Maharashtra, NCP leader Nawab Malik on Monday said it is the responsibility of “all of us” to give an alternative considering the plight of people in the state.
Malik, however, said the NCP will take any decision in consensus with its ally Congress in the evening.
He also said that communication was going on between the Shiv Sena and NCP.
Amid talks that the NCP and Congress may support the Shiv Sena in forming government, Malik told reporters here that there is a need to reach a consensus on “certain big issues” while working out a common minimum programme.
“It is the responsibility of us all to give an alternative given the plight of the people and farmers. We are expecting a decision from the Congress. If there is a consensus, we will proceed towards government formation,” the NCP chief spokesperson said.
Malik, however, said the NCP will not proceed with its decision till the Congress leadership takes a call on government formation in the state.
The Congress’ top leaders will hold parleys in Delhi at 4 pm on Monday.
“We will take decision based on their decision. We will take decision together as he fought the election in alliance,” Malik said.
