Amid the heavy political tensions in the Maharashtra state, NCP leader Sharad Pawar and Congress leader Ahmed Patel addressed a press conference in the state on Tuesday evening.

Both the parties had held a discussion earlier regarding the formation of the government. Addressing the press conference, senior leaders from both the parties said that they will try to bring Shiv Sena on board too once their talks get finalized.

Ahmed Patel said that Shiv Sena made formal contact with the party for the first time on Monday. He also said there should also be talks about clarity on the common minimum program.

The leader also said that since NCP and Congress had fought on a common manifesto, their alliance has no difference in the issues of governance. For bringing Shiv Sena, he said that the party will be discussing issues with them too. However, he also stated that the discussion has not started in this course yet.

Sharad Pawar further said that their alliance has no hurry in forming the government.

Responding to the NCP and Congress party’s joint conference, Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray also addressed a press conference with his son Aaditya Thackeray. He said that the party might consider going with the Congress-NCP alliance after the proper talks.

In another related event, lending his views for the first time on the recently imposed President’s rule in the state, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that he hopes that the state will get a stable government soon.

The sudden imposition of President’s rule in the state has left the opposition parties in quite a shocking position. While Congress party has termed the imposition as “a mockery of the constitutional process“, Shiv Sena moved to the Supreme Court seeking a hearing in the matter.
