After Rahul Gandhi’s remarks fuelled speculations of a rift in the MVA government, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP Supriya Sule jumped in for damage control and said that the right now their concern is to find a solution for the coronavirus crisis. 

Sule said that Rahul Gandhi was “absolutely right” as the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) is a coalition government and everyone takes a decision together while implying that the three parties including Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena in the MVA government had equal say. 

“I have heard the comments made by Rahul Gandhi and he is absolutely right. It is a coalition government and everyone takes a decision together. I have seen Uddhav Thackeray first hand taking everyone into confidence. He takes everyone along,” Sule told NDTV. 

Speaking on the coalition crisis rumours, Sule said that these speculations seem to be in a small group of people but right now the state government was working towards winning the war against coronavirus or COVID-19. 

However, NCP leader Majeed Memon objected to the statement made by Rahul Gandhi that Congress was not a key player in the MVA government in Maharashtra. 

“Congress members are a part of the cabinet. It is not right to say Congress is not part of the decision making process. Congress is not providing support from outside but are in the cabinet and contributed to the decision made by the Maharashtra government,” Memon said. 

The NCP leader further said that he respectfully disagrees with Rahul Gandhi and asserted that all three alliance partners in the MVA have equal say. 

Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that his party was not a key decision-maker in Maharashtra but was only supporting the government there. Gandhi’s remarks seem to be distancing Congress from the COVID-19 crisis in Maharashtra and come amid the allegations of “ineffective handling” of COVID-19 crisis against the Uddhav Thackeray government. 

Meanwhile, NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut have denied instability in the MVA government. Raut said that the MVA government was strong and steady.
