Sangma says Sena-BJP government is the only option in Maharashtra
The Nationalist Congress Party general secretary, P A Sangma, today said there was no alternative to a Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena alliance government in Maharashtra and the NCP would consider this option since its talks with the Congress in Bombay had failed.
Sangma told UNI that a meeting of senior leaders of the NCP would be held in New Delhi this evening to discuss the situation arising out of the failure of talks with the Congress.
Confirming that he had met Home Minister L K Advani, Sangma said he had discussed with the home minister the present political situation in Meghalaya, where the NCP could replace the Congress in the government. A meeting of the state and central NCP leaders would be held in New Delhi this evening to discuss the formation of a non-Congress government in the state.
Meghalaya has a coalition government headed by the United Democratic Party which constitutes the Congress and the Hill State People's Democratic Party. The Congress has 16 members in the 60-member state assembly.
Meghalaya NCP president Robert Kharshiyang, who is in Delhi, said the possibilities of forming a government comprising the 20- member UDP, 14-member NCP and three-member BJP were being looked into.
