According to reports, Pawar offered 16 seats for each of the three parties in the coalition, Congress, NCP, and Shiv Sena (UBT). The conversation happened at a meeting at Pawar’s home, Silver Oak. Sanjay Raut, a Rajya Sabha member for the Shiv Sena, and Jayant Patil, the leader of the NCP in the state, were both present at the meeting. On Wednesday, the INDIA alliance’s coordination committee will conduct its inaugural meeting at Pawar’s house in New Delhi.
A 14-member coordination committee would be established, it was determined during the third INDIA alliance conference, which was held in Mumbai. The coordination committee also includes KC Venugopal, MK Stalin, Hemant Soren, Abhishek Banerjee, Tejashwi Yadav, Lallan Singh, Javed Ali Khan, D Raja, Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullalh, and Raghav Chaddha. Pawar and Raut are also members of this group.
The meeting did indeed take place against the backdrop of the coordination committee meeting, according to Jayant Patil. “Following the INDIA alliance meeting’s conclusion, all parties agree that seat sharing should begin as soon as possible. The coordination committee for the three MVA parties will soon be established, and negotiations will begin, he added.
Only seats not associated with one of the three parties will be subject to seat sharing. “If a party has an MP who is currently serving from a seat, that party will run for that seat. The conversation about allocating the remaining seats will take place, according to the state NCP leader.
