As many as 54 Muslim organisations from in and around Mumbai passed a resolution not to vote for the Congress-NCP alliance in the upcoming polls. The representatives and Ulama met at Islam Gymkhana at Marine Drive and took the decision. They decided to form their own party known as the Maharashtra United Front. A state-wide meeting of prominent Muslims will be held on November 30 to fine-tune the decision to form the third front. The participants made it clear that their effort was to form a broad front of all secular forces. The meeting was attended by both Shia and Sunni leaders. The participants included Badruddin Ajmal, who played a significant role in the formation of the United Front in Assam.
