Pawar, who played a crucial role in the formation of the MVA government, said it will complete its full five-year term and ruled out going with the BJP, in case the state government falls. He said he would be meeting Thackeray later in the day and would be leaving for Mumbai soon after the opposition meeting on the joint presidential candidate.

“There are no differences in the alliance and all have full confidence in the leadership of Thackeray,” he told reporters.
“It is an internal matter of Shiv Sena, they will inform us after assessing the situation,” he also said.
He also said that his party will support the Shiv Sena.
The NCP chief said Eknath Shinde, who has turned a rebel along with some MLAs, never told them about his chief ministerial ambitions.
Internal issue of Shiv Sena: Chandrakant Patil
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena leader Chandrakant Patil said that the political crisis was an internal issue of the party and BJP has no role to play.
“We are observing the developments keenly. I have said this before that we are not sad that after betraying us they formed the government. It could have continued smoothly but having got power they became arrogant. One of their leaders will come on TV daily and taunt” he said.
