NCP leader Sharad Pawar on Thursday said it was for the Congress to decide the chief ministership virtually dismissing his partymen’s demand for rotation of the post.

“Congress will decide…,” was his response to a query whether Ashok Chavan will continue to be the CM if the Congress-NCP combine was voted to power.

NCP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal had advocated rotation of the post of chief minister in the state like in Jammu and Kashmir recently. He,however,today said it was his personal opinion.

To a query on what was the single biggest factor for the impressive show of Congress-NCP,Pawar said the leadership of Shiv Sena-BJP did not succeed in inspiring the confidence of the voters.

Noting that mature voters in Maharashtra have rejected the leadership of Uddhav Thackeray and did not take him seriously,Pawar said,they (voters) do not trust them “to deliver the goods”.

“Congress-NCP has done well… We have received extremely good response in rural Maharashtra. Of course in urban areas also,” the Union Agriculture Minister said.

Indicating that there would be no problem from the NCP in government formation,Pawar said,”we want a stable and result oriented government and a good relationship between the two parties.”
