Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Sharad Pawar on Tuesday clarified that there was no trouble in the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra. 

On Monday, Sharad Pawar along with Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh reached 'Matoshree' to meet Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Their meeting came after the Maharashtra government reversed the order to transfer 10 DCP-rank officers of Mumbai Police. 

Pawar said that he met Thackeray at latter’s residence to discuss the issues concerning Maharashtra and refuted the speculations of a ruckus among the alliance partners - Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress - in the MVA government. 

Earlier, the media reports suggest that the meeting at Matoshree was called to make sure that the allies in the MVA are not on different pages in the future. On Sunday, it was learnt that Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh met Thackeray at latter’s residence.

The order to transfer 10 DCPs of Mumbai Police was never submitted to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO). Thackeray sought details and learnt that Deshmukh, who holds the Home Ministry, was aware of the transfers.

The CMO and Home department office revoked the order to transfer 10 DCP-rank officers within 48 hours. 

However, Pawar said that reports of difference among the three allies were news to him. “There are no differences and discussion with the CM was related to the state and no other issues,” he asserted. 

The NCP chief expressed his satisfaction with the working of the MVA government and said that the Chief Minister had planned to work on several issued but tackling coronavirus outbreak became the priority. 

Earlier, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that Pawar visited Matoshree as a “father figure” and ruled out the possibility of any differences among the three allies. 

Meanwhile, the BJP attacked Thackeray government over their decision to reverse the transfer orders while accusing the MVA of lack of coordination. BJP MP Narayan Rane reiterated his demand to impose the President’s rule in Maharashtra.
