Uddhav Thackeray has called a meeting of party MLAs at his residence on Friday to assuage their concerns over delay in government-formation in Maharashtra.
MUMBAI: Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has called a meeting of party MLAs at his residence on Friday to assuage their concerns over delay in government-formation in Maharashtra.

The move comes on the back of uncertainty and delay. Despite Sena leaders holding talks with Congress and NCP brass, there appears no breakthrough or clarity on when Congress-NCP and Sena will form a government, a source said.

The development follows NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s claim on Monday in Delhi that there was no talks with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on supporting a Sena-led government. This rattled the Sena camp as Pawar even denied that the three parties had held talks on a common minimum programme.

According to sources, several Sena MLAs have become quite apprehensive as the days go by, and have even questioned the party leadership’s move to snap ties with BJP. They have, however, been pacified by saying that a Sena-NCP-Congress will be formed soon, the sources said.
