In a major development to the Maharashtra politics, Bhartiya Janta Party leaders met with Governor BS Kohsyari today. The saffron party delegation was led by party leader Chandrakant Patil. Party MLA Girish Mahajan, Sudhir Munagntiwar and Ashish Shelar were also present at the meeting.

After the meeting, Chandrakant Patil said that the Mahayuti alliance (BJP and Shiv Sena) won the elections with a clear majority. He further added that he discussed the implications and legal options in the existing situation of the state with the governor.

On one side, where BJP met the governor, the other side of the alliance saw a completely different picture. Shiv Sena assembled all of its MLAs in a Rangsharda hotel in Bandra today. The decision to gather all MLAs was taken in a meeting chaired by Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray at his residence- “Matoshree“.

Both parties have been blaming each other for the past few days over the delay in government formation. Ever since the saffron party claimed the support of 182 MLAs, Shiv Sena has been dealing with the matter proactively and that is what compelled the Shiv Sena to move its members to the hotel.

Speaking on the political uncertainty in the state, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said even though the saffron party met the governor, yet it did not stake the claim. The leader took a jibe at the BJP for its claim of having a majority.

In another interesting development. Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi leader Prakash Ambedkar also met the governor BS Koshyari and discussed the current political scenario.

Political Tussle in Maharashtra

Bhartiya Janta Party and Shiv Sena have been involved in a tussle over the post of Chief Minister. BJP had secured 105 seats while Shiv Sena sealed the victory on 56 seats. Shiv Sena is demanding the execution of 50:50 formula, as per which the CM post is to be decided for 2.5 years between both the parties on a rotational basis. However, the saffron party has insisted on retaining Devendra Fandavis as the Chief Minister only.
