Nationalist Congress Party forms five-member committee to discuss Common Minimum Programme in Maharashtra

After the joint address by the Congress-NCP alliance on Tuesday evening, Nationalist Congress Party constituted a committee of Maharashtra leaders to discuss the Common Minimum Programme. It has been reported that the proposed committee includes Jayant Patil, Ajit Pawar, Chhagan Bhujbal, Dhananjay Munde and Nawab Malik.

Previously, the Congress party had also constituted a similar committee to discuss the issues related to the government formation in Maharashtra. The members of Congress committee comprises of senior state leaders such as Prithviraj Chauhan, Ashok Chavan, Manikrao Thakre, Balasahab Thorat and Vijay Vedatiwar.

Earlier, both the parties had addressed a press conference on Tuesday in which they talked of bringing Shiv Sena on board after finalizing their talks.

The state has been put under President’s rule since no party has been able to present a clear majority to form the government. Ever since the BJP gave up its claim to form the government (owing to lack of numbers), Shiv Sena and NCP were given a chance to submit their letter of support. However, both parties too failed to constitute the government.

Therefore, the President’s rule was imposed in the state as per Article 356 of the Constitution in Maharashtra on Tuesday evening. Congress party had termed the imposition as “a mockery of the constitutional process“.
