The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar has said that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government is not in minority yet and the coalition government's fate will be decided in the Assembly.

Addressing the media after chairing a meeting with NCP MLAs, Pawar added that MVA has decided to back CM Uddhav Thackeray, who is firefighting a rebellion led by minister Eknath Shinde and over 30 Sena MLAs, who are currently camping in a hotel in Assam's Guwahati.

"MVA decided to back CM Uddhav Thackeray. I believe once the [Shiv Sena] MLAs return to Mumbai, the situation will change. Everyone knows how the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs were taken to Gujarat & then Assam. We don't have to take the names of all those assisting

them," Pawar said.

"One cannot question the [MVA] alliance. I'm sure in whatever conditions they [rebel MLAs] were taken shows the situation. A floor test will happen and then it will prove whether the government will survive or not. I have seen such situations many times earlier in Maharashtra," he added.

The statement from the NCP chief came minutes after the party asserted it will do all it can to save Maharashtra's ruling alliance and was firmly with CM Uddhav Thackeray.

Talking to reporters, Deputy Chief Minister and NCP leader Ajit Pawar said his party was firmly with the Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA.

"We will do all we can to save the alliance government," said Ajit Pawar.
