Emerging out of a meeting of their smaller allies in the state, NCP state Chief Jayant Patil said, " We have now met with all our alliance partners who were with us before the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls. Every one of our allies from the CPM have said that the BJP should be kept away from power, farmers and the down trodden should get relief from the new government."said Patil.

He added that he would name the alliance in a couple of days.

Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said that a few Congress leaders from Delhi would be coming to participate in the meeting with the Sena, Congress and NCP leaders.

" All the allies have been asked to bring their issues and agendas.

We have not asked for any ministerial berths. We (SP) is going to ask that the love jihad issue and communalism to be kept at bay. We want the new government to give reservation to Muslims. We will be placing our issues tomorrow."said Azmi.

When asked to respond on the difference between the Sena and BJP as they were both called communal by the SP earlier, Azmi said, " Both are same sides of the coin however the enemy of an enemy is our friend. We need to create differences between the two parties (BJP and Sena) and hence we have decided to come together." said Azmi.
