Maharashtra to have 11 Muslim MLAs, Haryana to have 05

Mumbai/New Delhi: The Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Thursday reached a broad understanding on the portfolio allocation in Maharashtra.


Union Defence Minister A K Antony, who is in-charge of party affairs in Maharashtra, announced this after a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi.


NCP's negotiator Praful Patel said that both the parties have cleared the portfolio issues.


The Congress-NCP alliance will stake claim to form the government on Friday and new government will take oath on Saturday, he added.


As per the deal between the two alliance partners, the Congress will have 23 ministers while NCP will have 20. All NCP ministers are expected to take oath on Saturday whereas the Congress ministers would be sworn in two phases.


This should put an end to the uncertainty that has prevailed since the declaration of the results on October 22.


Ahmed Patel from the Congress and Praful Patel from the NCP were engaged in talks in New Delhi until late Wednesday night discussing the deal and waiting for the nod from the Congress high command.


A day after Maharashtra Governor S C Jamir issued an ultimatum to the Congress-NCP combine; Chief Minister-designate Ashok Chavan had stated that a Government would be formed in the state in 48 hours.


Chavan calls on Sonia Gandhi

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan today held discussions with Congress President Sonia Gandhi, a day after the party sealed a deal with its ally, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to form a government in the state.


Chavan is understood to have discussed the allocation of portfolios at the meeting. Senior Congress leaders A K Antony and Ahmad Patel were also present.

The Congress and the NCP announced on November 5 that they had reached an agreement on power sharing and a new government is likely to be sworn in on November 6.
The Congress and the NCP rode back to power for the third time in a row defeating the opposition Shiv Sena-BJP in a mainly four-cornered contest in which the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Third Front successfully made inroads.
The NCP is expected to retain the key portfolios of Home, Finance, Power and Rural Development, while the Congress could get Public Health.

State Governor S C Jamir had earlier nudged both the parties to form a government at the earliest.
