Mumbai. The BJP in Maharashtra on Monday said it has the support of 15 Independent MLAs and asserted the party will “comfortably” form the next government taking the Shiv Sena along with it.
The BJP’s assertion comes amid the Shiv Sena’s demand for an equal share in power and the two saffron parties occupying the chief minister’s post on a rotational basis. But Shiv Sena is currently disagreeing with everything that the BJP says. Today was the heights of such type of disagreement, as BJP praised Aditya Thackeray for his work done for the youth, Shiv Sena disagreed and called Aditya a product of nepotism.
Sanjay Raut, the Shiv Sena MP has said that his party will not agree with BJP at any cost as that will be an insult to the 50:50 formula suggested by Amit Shah himself. BJP meanwhile has a new plan. It will announce in a press conference that Shiv Sena has decided to not form the government in Maharashtra with BJP, and Shiv Sena out of the sheer habit will come out in open and say that they will indeed form the government with BJP.
Faking News Reporter spoke to Sanjay Raut and he had this to say, “Our policy is simple, we cannot agree with anyone. In fact, there are disagreements among my own party members. We believe that dissent is an important part of democracy. And Shiv Sainiks will always disagree with everyone.”
We are still waiting for the final decision on the government formation in Maharashtra and will update you with the same as we get news coming in.
