Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar met Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday in a bid to step up efforts to form a non-BJP regime in the post-poll scenario.
On being asked about the purpose of the meeting, Pawar did not disclose much apart from saying that it was a meeting to assess the 'elections in their respective states.'
"We just met and assessed the elections in our respective states. We are waiting for counting day to take further steps," said Pawar.
In view of the impending results, non-BJP party leaders have been meeting each other to discuss the post-poll scenarios.
On May 18, Naidu undertook a hectic round of discussions with opposition leader including Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati in Lucknow.
Naidu is on a mission of rallying opposition parties in a bid to keep the BJP out of power, in case its numbers fall short of majority considerably.
Sunday marks the end of the seven-phased Lok Sabha polls in the country. The counting of votes would take place on May 23.
