Sonia Gandhi to choose Maharashtra chief minister


Sticking to tradition, the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting, which was held in the Vidhan Bhavan (state legislature), passed a one-line resolution that Sonia Gandhi would choose the chief minister.

A central team comprising party general secretary Digvijay Singh, Defence Minister A.K. Antony and Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha K Rehman Khan were present to ascertain the views of the newly-elected legislators for the post of chief minister, a party officer bearer said.

While most political observers here expect incumbent chief minister Ashok Chavan to continue after the impressive victory of the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party combine at the hustings, party leader Narayan Rane was also reported to have thrown his hat in the ring.
