Meanwhile, the Prime Minister today chaired a meeting of the Union Cabinet where the political situation in Maharashtra was discussed. The Cabinet is learnt to have approved the Governor’s recommendation to the President to impose President’s rule in the state.

Congress and NCP, who have a pre-poll alliance, have also decided to make the decision about supporting Shiv Sena collectively.

On Monday, right before the deadline ended, Sena met the Governor and asked for two more days of time, which was rejected. The NCP was called to form the government. Parleys began between Congress and NCP to discuss the government formation as well as key posts. The top party leaders are scheduled to meet in Mumbai later today. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena is considering moving the Supreme Court against Maharashtra Governor, as they were denied more time to form the government in Maharashtra.
