Can Shiv Sena get support of NCP and Congress?

The BJP's oldest ally of 30 years, the Shiv Sena, on Monday said it is breaking all ties with the party as it looks to form the government with the support of the NCP and the Congress.


A delegation from the party will meet the Governor at 2.30 pm. Sources have said that there is a proposal to give deputy CM posts to the NCP and the Congress to take their support.

Party leader Sanjay Raut said there is no question of any relationship with the BJP when they did not follow what they agreed upon, referring to the 50-50 deal on chief ministership.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Monday said whatever be the decision, the two parties will take it together. "We (the Congress and NCP) contested the election together. Whatever the decision, we will have to take it together."
