Uddhav Thackeray meets NCP chief Sharad Pawar in Mumbai

Amid the stalemate over government formation in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray met NCP president Sharad Pawar in Mumbai on Monday. The Sena chief was accompanied by his son Aaditya Thackeray as he called on Pawar at an undisclosed location.

The Congress and NCP are at present holding parleys at their respective party levels on whether to support a Shiv Sena-led government in the state.

The two parties have already declared that whatever the decision, they will take it together.
