New Delhi, November 21

The Congress Working Committee on Thursday reviewed the political scenario in Maharashtra, a day after it held a marathon meeting with the NCP on forming an alliance together with Shiv Sena to form a government in the state.

Congress general secretary KC Venugopal told the media after a meeting at party chief Sonia Gandhi’s 10 Janpath residence that the CWC was briefed on the discussion between the NCP and Congress on Wednesday.

However, Congress sources said a final decision on Maharashtra is expected by Friday.

The CWC, sources said, had broadly agreed to go ahead with government formation with the Shiv Sena and the NCP.

Another meeting between the Congress and NCP is to happen on Thursday night and a final meeting with the Shiv Sena will happen on Friday in Mumbai.

The decision on government-formation in Maharashtra would be announced in Mumbai on Friday, sources said. PTI
