New Delhi, Aug 2 (IBNS): The Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) coordination panel is expected to meet on Sunday in a bid to bridge some of the gap triggered by the recent standoff between the two allies who share power in Maharashtra and at the Centre.
The panel was reactivated following the altercation that reportedly even saw the NCP threaten to pull out of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) coalition government at the Centre on charges that its suggestions and grievances were not being paid heed to.
Maharashtra Congress chief Mohan Prakash said his party and the Sharad Pawar-led NCP would try to resolve all contentious issues during the meeting.
While the Congress is likely to take up the NCP's decision to join hands with its rival Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Vidarbha local body polls, the NCP could take on its ally for not taking them into confidence for key decisions.
The NCP will seek regular meetings of the committee from now on to ensure smooth and effective coordination between the two coalition partners, NCP spokesman Madan Bafna told reporters on Thursday.
