New Delhi: The Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday (March 28) left people hanging after he declined to comment upon a purported secret meeting with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, amid the crisis in Maharashtra coalition government.

"Everything need not be made public," he replied to the press, when asked about the secret meeting in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

The cryptic response, which stopped well short of denying whether he had met the NCP duo, came after speculation swirled through the day of a secret meeting. NCP, however, came out with a formal denial late in the evening.

The meeting comes a week after the chaos in Maharashtra over alleged corruption charges on Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh levelled by Mumbai ex-top cop Param Bir Singh. Additionally, the meeting coincided with Anil Deshmukh’s announcement in which he revealed that a retired judge of the high court will be conducting a probe into the allegations of corruption levelled against him.

These allegations on the Maharashtra Home Minister were levelled by former Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh.

Moreover, a day before the meeting Shiv Sena's mouthpiece Saamana also came out. The mouthpiece carried heavy criticism of the government for its inability to counter allegations, adding that its damage control plans were "inadequate".
