New Delhi: In a major twist to the political power play in Maharashtra, Congress treasurer Ahmed Patel on Wednesday morning called on Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari at his residence in the national capital. The meeting sent the rumor mills running in the political circles into overtime.

The meeting comes a day after the RSS threw its weight behind the Union minister as the troubleshooter to broker peace with a sulking Shiv Sena. Interstingly Mr Patel later tweeted that his meeting was regarding several issues concerning Gujarat. Leaving from the meeting, Mr Patel said he met the Union minister for road transport over “farmer issues”.  “I met him over farmer issues and other issues. It was not a political meeting or on Maharashtra politics,” he said. Later in the day, Mr Patel also put out two letters that he had handed over to Mr Gadkari detailing the concerns over several projects of the government of India.

 

In the last couple of days the senior Congress leaders from Mahara-shtra have come and briefed the Congress high command over the situation.
