NEW DELHI :
On Sunday, the political drama in Maharashtra came to the fore once governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari invited Shiv Sena to form the government.
The invitation came a few hours after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which emerged as the largest single party in the parliamentary election, announced that there was no number in the state council and that it could not form the government. On Saturday, the governor invited foster prime minister Devendra Fadnavis to form the government.
“Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, one of the elite members of the second largest party, asked Shiv Sena to show Eknath Shinde's party's willingness and ability to form the government in Maharashtra,” he said. Said by the governor.
Earlier in the day, Shiv Sena leaders met with party chief Uddhav Thackeray and reiterated that if the BJP was not ready to form the government in the state, the regional party was ready to try to form a coalition government in Maharashtra. Within 16 days of the announcement of the results of the parliamentary elections, Shiv Sena leaders also met with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar.
“If no party is ready to form a government in the state, Shiv Sena can assume the responsibility of forming a government in Maharashtra. Congress is not the enemy of the state, and in some respects there are differences between all political parties, "said Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena's spokesman and deputy in Rajya Sabha.
Shiv Sena is hopeful that Pawar will receive support for the top assignment, but the NCP has not yet released its cards. Both the NCP and the Congress argued that the task of the Maharashtra people for both sides was to take part in the Opposition.
The day also witnessed intense meetings of BJP leaders, where legislative members (MLAs) in Mumbai met Fadnavis twice. Later, the BJP announced that it could not form a government because of the necessary number of shortcomings in parliament.
“We will not form government in the state. The assignment was given for the cooperation between the BJP and Shiv Sena to work together, but if Shiv Sena wants to disrespect the public's duty and form a government with the help of the government and the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), we wish you the best. Chandrakant Patil, head of the Maharashtra unit of the BJP.
Shiv Sena, who jointly objected to the election with the BJP, requested that the prime ministry be turned between the two, as previously agreed, but the BJP rejected the request and said there was no such agreement. The Alliance was clearly involved in the elections; BJP and Shiv Sena won 105 seats and 56 seats in the 288-member parliament, respectively.
