    Mumbai: A day after Rahul Gandhi said that Congress is not a “key decision maker in Maharashtra”, he spoke to CM Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday morning and assured his party’s wholehearted support to the coalition government.

    Gandhi told Thackeray that his remarks were ‘misconstrued’ and that his party would support the Sena-led government for the entire five-year term, Sena leaders told ET .

    Former Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan said it was being wrongly interpreted that Congress was washing its hands of Maharashtra because of the pandemic. “You have to remember that the situation in Mumbai is quite different from other places in the country. This is the most densely populated place. This is a humungous challenge. BJP claims the state is not doing a better job but we have seen Fadnavis during the floods in the state and the disastrous manner in which he handled it,” he said.

    He said the Congress has to support the Sena-led government in Maharashtra for the entire five years to keep BJP out. “We have to do this only to stop BJP, or else BJP would come to power. This government would last for five years,” he said.

    Maharashtra Speaker Nana Patole also expressed confidence that the government would last for five years and said the “situation in the state was not against the government”.
