Pawar also called Chief Minister Eknath Shinde from the spot and apprised him about the plan to hold a joint meeting.
"I also spoke to CM before coming here. He told me that he is ready to convene a joint meeting of student representatives, me and the officials of MPSC in the next two days," the NCP chief said.
