Even as Maharashtra has been placed under Presidential rule since yesterday, on Wednesday the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) is in a huddle in Mumbai, making a last-ditch attempt to salvage the situation and form a government with the help of Congress and Shiv Sena.

It is also learnt that a new equation is being cobbled by the parties in which, a Shiv Sena will nominate its candidate as the Chief Minister for two and a half years, while each party will get 14 ministerial portfolios taking the number of ministers to 42.
