Political parties have to choose their path: Sharad Pawar on government formation in Maharashtra
- Speaking to media in Parliament, Sharad Pawar said, "BJP-Shiv Sena fought together, we (NCP) and Congress fought together in the elections. They have to choose their path and we will do our politics."
- Sharad Pawar will meet Sonia Gandhi today evening to discuss a possible alliance with the Shiv Sena to form a government in Maharashtra.
The Sena had reached out to the Congress-NCP combine for support after its alliance with the BJP collapsed.
"BJP-Shiv Sena fought together, we (the NCP) and the Congress fought together. They have to choose their path and we will do our politics," he told reporters before the Winter Session of Parliament began.
The saffron alliance had secured a comfortable majority by winning 105 and 56 seats, respectively, in the 288-member Maharashtra assembly.
Pre-poll allies Congress and NCP won 44 and 54 seats.
