Mumbai: A day after Maharashtra Congress leader Narayan Rane quit the state cabinet, he met Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Tuesday. Rane met Chavan along with leader Manikrao Thakre.
Rane has long been vying for the top post in the state and was upset that the Congress leadership decided to retain Chavan as the chief minister ahead of the state Assembly polls.
Rane's resignation has not been accepted yet.
He said, "I have raised the issue and will discuss it with Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Then only a decision will be taken."
On his one hour long meeting with Rane, Chavan said, "We discussed his resignation and the elections in the state. Whatever points he raised will be discussed and then a decision will be taken."
