Shiv Sena MLAs asked to bring Government ID cards to a key meeting

Amid the political deadlock in Maharashtra, the three parties – Congress, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Shiv Sena – are working out ways to form the government in the state.

While NCP and Congress leaders are meeting in Delhi, Shiv Sena has called all its newly-elected MLAs on November 22 for a key meeting in Mumbai. 

A Shiv Sena leader informed that the party MLAs have been asked to bring their official government ID cards. The direction for bringing ID cards have been given to deal with a situation where the MLAs are required to be presented before Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.

Along with this, the MLAs have been asked to bring 5-days worth of clothes. The meeting has been called at ‘Matoshree’ which is the residence of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. 

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Bhalchandra Bapat slammed Shiv Sena saying that the government formation in Maharashtra has been stalled due to their stubborn attitude. 

It is not logical to make Aditya Thackeray the Chief Minister. Shiv Sena is in talks with Congress and NCP, which will not be possible under any circumstances,” said Bapat.

On Thursday evening, NCP and Congress leaders from Maharashtra held a meeting for almost three hours at NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s residence in Delhi.
