Amid the talks going on between Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress regarding government formation in Maharashtra, Mumbai NCP President Nawab Malik on Friday said that the Chief Minister will be from Sena only. 

While talking to the media, Malik stated that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has insulted Shiv Sena and it is their responsibility to maintain Sena’s dignity. 

The question of whether the Chief Minister will be from Shiv Sena is being asked continuously. The tussle between Shiv Sena and BJP happened due to the CM post. So, it is definite that the CM will be from Sena. Shiv Sena has been insulted and it is our responsibility to maintain their self-respect,” said Nawab Malik.

Senior NCP leader Nawab Malik further informed that concerned leaders from all three parties – Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena – finalised the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) and its draft has been sent to the high command of all three parties.

The decision on the CMP draft will be taken soon. The CMP includes the issue of farmers, loan waiver, employment generation among others,” said Malik.

NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena came together for the first time on Thursday to hold talks over government formation in Maharashtra. Largely, the discussions in the meeting focused on deciding CMP, to form a stable government with Shiv Sena (their traditional rival). 

After the President's rule was imposed in Maharashtra, the political developments have picked up the pace. The Shiv Sena is trying to form the government with NCP and Congress alliance to keep the BJP out of power. 

Shiv Sena and BJP contested the recently concluded assembly elections in Maharashtra together. However, despite getting a clear majority, Shiv Sena and BJP alliance failed to form the government amid their tussle over power-sharing.
