New Delhi, March 28
Union Home Minister Amit Shah today refused to divulge anything about his purported meeting with NCP supremo Sharad Pawar amid the ongoing political crisis in the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra.
“Everything need not be made public,” Shah said responding to a query about the “meeting”.
According to reports, “two NCP leaders” visited Ahmedabad for a hush-hush meeting with “some businessman” at a venue where Shah also reached.
The buzz is that Pawar and Praful Patel were the two NCP leaders who met Shah “at a farmhouse in Ahmedabad on Saturday”.
While Shah declined to confirm it, he also did not deny meeting the NCP leaders.
At a time when Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government is struggling to survive, the meeting opens up space for a whole lot of speculations, possibilities, permutations and combinations, especially with the Shiv Sena now openly gunning for Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
