Malegaon: Call it a political compulsion or a mockery of people’s verdict. Congress and Teesra Mahaz – the two parties which were blaming each other for all the evils in the town during the poll campaign have decided to sit together in the newly elected Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC).


The decision is taken in a meeting held in Mumbai on Tuesday between leaders of both the parties and the Congress high command.


Speaking to from Mumbai on phone, leader of the Teesra Mahaz and local MLA Mufti Mohd Ismael said that he received the offer of an alliance from Manekrao Thakre - Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) chief, Maharashtra. After consulting with his partymen it was decided to accept the offer.


Stating that any delay or talking with smaller parties would have given rise to horse trading, he said, "We decided to form an alliance with the Congress to avoid 'horse trading' and keeping in mind development of the town."


"The Congress is in power in the state as well as at the centre. An alliance with them would help in getting funds needed for the development of the town", he added.


Malegaon Municipal Corporation elections were held on April 15. However, no party could win 41 seats - the number needed to rule the civic body alone.


While the Congress emerged as the single largest party by winning 25 of the total 80 seats, Teesra Mahaz won on 19 seats.


Confirming the reports of the alliance, Shaikh Asif, president of the Malegaon Congress party said that the alliance was formed after the leaders of the Teesra Mahaz agreed to work jointly for the people of the town.


As per the agreement reached between the two, he said, the Congress will have its mayor for the entire term whereas Teesra Mahaz will have its candidate for the post of Deputy Mayor.
