Mumbai: The NCP, Shiv Sena and Congress are likely to stake a claim to form the government in Maharashtra by November 30.
The three parties following a series of meetings agreed in principle to form a stable government in Maharashtra. An announcement to this effect would be made on Friday. The NCP’s Nawab Malik said that all aspects regarding the formation of the government were discussed. It was decided that no stable government could be formed without the three parties. In principle the three parties have decided to join hands and form a stable government which will last the full five years, he also said.
The chief minister’s post in Maharashtra is most likely to be on a rotational basis, with the first half of the five-year term to be given to the Shiv Sena and the latter to the Nationalist Congress Party, NCP sources said.
The Congress is likely to have the deputy chief minister’s post for the full term, they said.
