A SCHEDULED joint committee meeting of Congress and NCP leaders to work out details of Common Minimum Programme (CMP) for formation of Government in Maharashtra with support of the Shiv Sena was cancelled, a visibly upset Ajit Pawar said on Wednesday night, triggering speculations. Ajit, nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, told reporters present outside the Pawar senior’s residence here that he was heading towards Baramati, his Assembly constituency, in Pune district.
“The meeting stands cancelled...I don’t know when it will take place,” Ajit said even as he refused to answer queries from media persons. “I am heading to Baramati,” Ajit said when asked about the reason behind cancellation of the meeting. Maharashtra NCP chief Jayant Patil was accompanying Ajit Pawar in his vehicle. However, NCP chief spokesperson Nawab Malik said the meeting is very much on. He also appealed against spreading rumours.
