Mumbai: NCP leader and Maharashtra Deputy
Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Tuesday said that NCP will get the
Mayor`s post in Pune Municipal Corporation while ally Congress
will get the Deputy Mayor`s post.

Elections to nine municipal corporations in Maharashtra
were held last month.

About the situation in Thane corporation, he said no
party had clear majority, hence all were trying to muster up
numbers. Congress and NCP were in the race to get the
Mayor/Deputy Mayor posts in Thane, he added.

"Shiv Sena-BJP are distressed because they have not got a
majority, therefore they are making allegations," Pawar said,
talking about the charge that an NCP leader was behind the
alleged abduction of a BJP corporator in Thane.
