Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Wednesday denied reports which claimed that party chief Uddhav Thackeray met senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel.

Raut took to Twitter to inform that the rumours which are being “deliberately spread” claiming that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had met Congress’ Ahmed Patel and made some sort of settlement is “untrue”. 

In his tweet, Raut further informed that Shiv Sena’s talks with Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) are in process. 

Even after the imposition of President’s rule in Maharashtra, the political developments continued. On Wednesday, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray met Maharashtra Congress leaders including Balasaheb Thorat, Ashok Chavan and Manikrao Thakre and informed that the talks with Congress and NCP are going in the right directions. 

Earlier on Tuesday, senior Congress leaders including Ahmed Patel, Mallikarjun Kharge and KC Venugopal visited Mumbai and met NCP chief Sharad Pawar. The NCP-Congress decided to work out a common minimum programme (CMP) by forming a joint committee ahead of a possible alliance with Shiv Sena. 

As per the media reports, before leaving Mumbai, Congress leader Ahmed Patel met Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. However, Sanjay Raut clarafied on the behalf of the Shiv Sena chief that this was “untrue”.

NCP and Congress leaders are likely to meet in Delhi in the coming days to decided on the CMP to form a stable government with Shiv Sena. The sources inform that both the parties may discuss the power-sharing formula as well.
