Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan denied that the Congress was having any problems with the Nationalist Congress Party in the state.
He said the leaders of the two parties met regularly to discuss policy decisions, and the crisis in New Delhi would not affect the alliance in Maharashtra.
However, Chavan maintained that he was open to discussing specific cases that the NCP wanted him to resolve. He said there was always scope to improve coordination between the partners.
Earlier in the day, state NCP president Madhukar Pichad had lamented that there was a lack of coordination between the ruling parties.
Chavan denied allegations made by his own party members and NCP legislators that he did not take decisions.
“I have taken many policy decisions that benefit people at large. But I may not have taken decisions that benefit individuals.”
Ajit Pawar, deputy chief minister, told the media that the parties were working effortlessly in the government.
“And if there are any problems, the senior leaders will sit together to resolve them.”
