Asked about the issue of leadership of the secular alliance, he said that the matter would be decided after May 13 when the election results would be out. "All allies will sit together and take a decision".

To a query about the Congress changing tack on the leadership issue and now speaking about a coalition led by it, Anwar hoped the Congress would stick to the stand that all parties in the alliance would take decision together on the issue after the polls. "No decision can be taken unilaterally", he said.

Anwar had a meeting today with NCP President Sharad Pawar who returned from London after a medical check-up.
