New Delhi: The re-elected Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Sunday said that the state cabinet would be formed after the meeting of NCP MLAs on Monday and Raj Thackeray`s support will not be taken to form the government there.

"NCP legislature meeting will be held tomorrow and
after that only the government formation process will start,"
Chavan told reporters while addressing a press conference

Asked if the Congress-NCP government will take support
of MNS, he said, "There is no question of taking Raj
Thackeray`s support".

Listing the government`s priorities in his second

election manifesto of the two parties.

He added that Maharashtra would be made self-reliant
in the power sector in the next three years.

Chavan said that after his appointment as Chief
Minister was announced last night, he held meetings with
President Pratibha Patil and senior leaders like AK Antony,
Sharad Pawar and Ahmad Patel to discuss the formation of the
