Mumbai, Nov 22: The Shiv Sena, Congress, NCP and their smaller allies on Friday unanimously decided on the name of Sena President Uddhav Thackeray's name for the post of Chief Minister, here.
The Sena MLA's meeting on Friday morning 'unanimously authorised' Mr Thackeray to take any decision on the question of CM, which would be acceptable to the party.
"All the legislators have unanimously given full powers to Mr Thackeray to take any decision pertaining to the post of CM and other government formation aspects," Sena leader Sunil Prabhu told mediapersons.
Similarly, after a meeting of the Congress-NCP with allies, a similar statement was made by Samajwadi Party state president Abu Asim Azmi on the same question.
"Most leaders felt that Uddhav Thackeray should be the CM… However, we have left that decision on him and his party," Azmi told the media.
Top leaders of the Sena, NCP and Congress had a meeting in the evening over government formation and they claimed that it was productive. (UNI)
