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 here.

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 term in office, he said that he would work to implement the 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 new government.
