The meeting of Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief Ajit Pawar with BJP MP Prataprao Chikhalikar on Saturday has made another round of speculation among media circles.

The meeting happened hours before the trust vote in the Maharashtra Assembly is making ripples among political circles also. It is learnt that NCP which has called a legislature party meeting at 12noon may come out with a whip to its members.

Allaying the fears, Ajit Pawar said: "It was just a courtesy meet , even if we are from different parties we all have relations with each others, no discussion on floor test. As Sanjay Raut said, our alliance will prove our numbers today in the house".

Ajit Pawar has now arrived at the Assembly ahead of confidence vote along with Senior NCP leaders Jayant Patil and Praful Patel.
