The news stunned the state, even as conjectures as to how Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar would cobble up the support of 145 MLAs, necessary to prove the majority, began.
A Congress leader told PTI on the condition of anonymity that his party had an inkling that a section of the NCP could join hands with the BJP if the Congress-NCP- Sena alliance failed to materialise.
