    The phone call from Thackeray to Gandhi came before the Congress held a crucial meeting for a second time in the day to decide on whether or not to support the Shiv Sena. The Shiv Sena chief sought the Congress' support to form a government in Maharastra. Thackeray also met NCP chief Sharad Pawar in Mumbai.

    Congress leader and former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan said the governor should have invited his party to indicate "willingness and ability" to form government. Senior Congress leader and former Union minister Sushilkumar Shinde echoed a similar view, saying "once we have letters of support, the President's rule can be lifted".

    Putting up a brave front, Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray told reporters outside Raj Bhavan here on Monday night that his party's claim on formation of a government still stands, as the two parties have agreed "in-principle" to support the Sena-led government.

    In the meanwhile, the Shiv Sena has moved the Supreme Court against Maharashtra Governor's decision to reject its plea seeking three days time to get letters of support from the NCP and the Congress.
