Maharashtra has been placed under the President's rule and even after weeks since the Maharashtra election results were announced, there is no government in sight in the state. After bitter fallout of alliance partners BJP and Shiv Sena, the Uddhav Thackeray-led party has now moved to knock on the doors of rivals Congress and NCP. Sonia Gandhi and Sharad Pawar will be holding a crucial meeting this morning to discuss government formation in Maharashtra. Congress and NCP leaders have held several rounds of meetings to discuss the conditions of joining the Shiv Sena-led government in Maharashtra. Meanwhile, in order to join hands with Congress-NCP, Shiv Sena has quit the NDA government at the Centre and will now be sitting with the Opposition MLAs. Maharashtra will see significant developments today as Sonia Gandhi and Sharad Pawar meet to discuss government formation with opponents Shiv Sena.
