After governor's invite to BJP, NCP plans for 'alternative government' in Maharashtra

MNS chief Raj Thackeray visits Kataria High School on Saturday

The Shiv Sena on Sunday said that the party's chief, Uddhav Thackeray, will decide on the next Maharashtra chief minister and that Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar will play an "important role" in the process. While speaking to Republic TV moments after the BJP's announcement, Memon said that some arrangements or some understandings among parties should be there as nobody wants a re-election - hinting that his party may be ready to act.

"I welcome the governor's decision to invite the BJP. From 105 to 145 is a long way".

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Saturday invited the BJP to form the government in the state where there has been a political deadlock since October 24, when assembly election results were announced. This experiment, they could not dare to do in Maharashtra. "Shiv Sena needs to first exit from the NDA as it has one cabinet post (in the Narendra Modi government)".

While Fadnavis claimed that the BJP had never promised to share the chief minister's post with its ally, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray maintained that assurance of equal sharing of all posts had been given, and the BJP must not portray him as a liar.

Chavan said he was in favour of forming a stable government in Maharashtra. "Politics is not a trade for the Shiv Sena". A party legislator said seeking anonymity that more MLAs are expected to join them. "The bubble of being invincible has burst", Raut said.

When a reporter pointed out that the Sena was not criticising the opposition NCP in the wake of a possible alliance between the two parties, Raut said, "We have not criticised the BJP either".

Every political party has differences with the other party. "At the same time, there are some leaders in the Congress and NCP who identify themselves with the Sena's stand on this border dispute issue", he said.

Koshyari asked Sena legislative party leader Eknath Shinde to "indicate willingness and ability" of the party to form government in Maharashtra, a Raj Bhavan statement said.

The opposition Congress also conducted informal discussions with its legislators, now flown to Jaipur, to gauge their mood on supporting the Sena, though the party high command has already expressed its reluctance in the matter.

But the BJP's hopes for a seamless transition into a second straight term with Devendra Fadnavis in charge are on hold with the Sena demanding equal power-share under what it calls was a "50:50 formula" discussed with Amit Shah earlier this year, before the national election in May. "We will see how the day progresses", said the Rajya Sabha member.
