The Congress said on late Thursday night that it had conveyed its stand about portfolio allocation to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Congress' Ashok Chavan spoke to reporters after a meeting of leaders of the ruling coalition of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress in Mumbai.

The meeting on Thursday night was attended by Mr Chavan, Maharashtra Congress chief Balasaheb Thorat, NCP's Ajit Pawar, Shiv Sena's Eknath Shinde and others.

"We gave our proposal to the CM. He will take a call," Mr Chavan said while downplaying reports about resentment in the party over portfolio distribution.
