Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress leaders on Thursday afternoon held a meeting at NCP chief Sharad Pawar's residence in Delhi to finalise the government formation in Maharashtra.  After the meeting concluded, Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan informed the media that both the parties – Congress and NCP – have completed all discussions and will unanimously decide on everything. 

NCP and Congress are incomplete unanimity and the announcement on government formation will be made only after meeting with Shiv Sena tomorrow. Shiv Sena was kept in the loop during our meetings," said senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan.

Chavan further said that they will talk to the smaller alliance partners tomorrow before meeting with Shiv Sena in Mumbai. Maharashtra Congress President Balasaheb Thorat informed that first, they will meet their party MLAs and pre-poll alliance partners followed by the meeting with Shiv Sena. 

According to sources, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and NCP chief Sharad Pawar are likely to attend the joint meeting which will be held in Mumbai.  The power-sharing formula is likely to be discussed in the meeting and once the obstacles over issues are cleared, the three parties will join hands to form the government in Maharashtra by Sunday. 

Maharashtra is under the President's rule since November 12 after no party was able to form government in the state. Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had denied the offer to form the government citing that they don't have the numbers.

BJP and Shiv Sena headed for a tussle after the declaration of assembly election results in Maharashtra over power-sharing which led to Sena's exit from National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
