Mumbai, February 23: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi recently had an hour-long discussion with Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray over seat-sharing in Maharashtra for the Lok Sabha elections. The phone call to Uddhav Thackeray followed an earlier call between Rahul Gandhi and NCP (Nationalist Congress Party-Sharad Chandra Pawar) supremo Sharad Pawar. All three parties are part of the Maha Vikas Aghadi or MVA in Maharashtra.

According to reports, the MVA partners have reached an agreement on 39 out of 48 parliamentary seats in Maharashtra. There are differences on the remaining nine seats which include Mumbai South Central and Mumbai North West. Both Shiv Sena (UBT) and Congress want these two seats. Prakash Ambedkar's Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi's demand for five seats is also delaying the final seat-sharing pact.
