Mumbai: While the state leaders of Congress are in favor of supporting Shiv Sena to form the government, the leaders of Congress have established two conditions for support.

Congress wants Sena to leave the government of the NDA and the Union first and finalize a common minimum program. Congress wants Sena to also abandon Hindutva’s position on key issues.

Although the leadership of the state Congress pursues its demand to support Sena to form the government, the high command of the party has chosen a policy of waiting and observing.

Congress believes that if BJP and Sena fail to form a government, then Congress should support Sena. “If we support Sena in the current political situation, our main secular voters may be disappointed.

We cannot commit to our ideology. Sena cannot seek our support by continuing in NDA and in the central government led by BJP. Therefore, they will first have to leave the NDA and the union government, “said a senior congressional leader in New Delhi.

“There are many controversial issues that can divide our alliance, especially Ram Mandir. We want Sena to put aside Hindutva’s position on various issues and we will formulate a common minimum government program based on our manifests, ”said the leader.

It should be noted that Congress and the PCN published their joint manifesto, while Shiv Sena and BJP published their manifests separately. The common minimum program can have all the key promises, including Rs 10 Thali. Also in the past, the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) led by Congress had devised such a common minimum program in 2004 at the center.

Keep BJP at bay, demand legislators

On Wednesday, the Congress party had an informal meeting with young legislators such as Vishwajeet Kadam, Amit Deshmukh, Sartej Patil along with former CM Ashok Chavan, state president Balasaheb Thorat and opposition leader in the Assembly Vijay Wadettiwar.

All legislators demanded to keep BJP at bay in the state. “All legislators present at the meeting were of the opinion that Congress should take the initiative to keep BJP out of power,” Ashok Chavan told the media.

When asked about the possibility of his party supporting a government led by Shiv Sena, Chavan said that Congress and the NCP will jointly decide their future course of action if a BJP-Shiv Sena government is not formed in Maharashtra.

Speaking to journalists, the former Prime Minister of Maharashtra said that the mandate in the October 21 elections was for the combination of Congress and the PCN to sit in opposition.

No party has a majority in the assembly polls and that is why Congress feels that BJP should not be in power, Chavan said. “The state has suffered a lot in the last five years. Farmers are in crisis … the economic situation is not good, “added the newly elected MLA of Bhokar in the Nanded district.
