According to the confirmed BJP sources in Maharashtra, it has been reported that the saffron party is ready to claim 155 assembly seats in the upcoming state polls. Bhartiya Janta Party has seemed to quashed the 50-50 seat demand formula of Shiv Sena party.

Maharashtra will go to polls for its 288 assembly seats in October this year. Shiv Sena was pursuing Bhartiya Janta Party to agree on sharing assembly seats in a 50-50 manner. But the Bhartiya Janta Party is said to be discussing its options beyond this demand. Now, it is expected that if Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is able to take smaller regional parties on the board, BJP’s seat tally might go upto 173 in total. If this happens, then Shiv Sena’s strength might reduce to just 110 seats.

In April, Bhartiya Janta Party President Amit Shah had a meeting with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray to agree on a seat-sharing formula. According to the old formula, it was stated that both the parties would have got 144 seats. But, this 50-50 pact now seems to be in perils.

It has also been reported that Shiv Sena is ready with the list of its 288 candidates if things go down between the two parties. Though the party leader Matoshree said that any kind of confrontation with the saffron party in the state will not be good for Shiv Sena only. He said it might even lead to a split in the Shiv Sena. Acknowledging the mighty control of BJP in the state, the leader said “There is no point in picking up a quarrel with the BJP at this point in time. We will have to wait till the mighty BJP tide subsides.”

Uddhav Thackwray while talking to the media had said that the decision about the alliance will be soon out in open.
