Hours after rejecting Shiv Sena’s demand to extend the deadline to form government in Maharashtra, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari Monday called NCP to stake claim at the government. NCP leader Nawab Malik told ANI that the party will hold discussions with ally Congress and see how a stable govt can be provided to the state.
Earlier, the Governor rejected the Shiv Sena’s request to extend the deadline to submit letters of support from the Congress and NCP to form the government. A statement from Raj Bhavan said, “A delegation of Shiv Sena leaders met the Governor and expressed willingness to form the government. However, they could not submit the requisite letters of support. Further, they submitted a letter requesting for three days of extension of the deadline for submitting the letters of support. The Governor expressed his inability to give any further extension.”
