Will BJP blink first? or will Shiv Sena compromise?


After a couple of weeks of stalemate over the formation of the government in Maharashtra, both BJP and Shiv Sena might announce their decisions and a breakthrough might happen on Thursday. The parties have been adamant on their stand since the election results with Sena demanding 2 and half years as CM for their candidate while BJP not keen on sharing. 

Interestingly, the Vidhan Sabha term is expected to end in just two days and both the parties are under huge pressure to bring a conclusion to this political drama. 

On Thursday, the BJP leaders are scheduled to meet governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari while Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackrey has called for a meeting with the MLAs at his residence.

Interestingly, the BJP and Shiv Sena ministers met on Wednesday, marking it the first time that the leaders of the two parties met since the announcement of the election results. The two parties have been only communicating through the media and this was the first face to face interaction between them. 

Although the agenda of the meeting was disclosed as "wet drought" in the state, two senior Shiv Sena leaders Eknath Shinde and Ramdas Kadam later had a separate meeting with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. 

Meanwhile, it is being speculated that the Uddhav Thackrey in his meeting with the MLAs will decide whether to carry on with their demand for 50:50 power-sharing or be content with a Deputy CM post. 

BJP leaders have repeatedly said that the chief minister’s post is non-negotiable. Senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar said that the Mahayuti (alliance) will form the government under the leadership of Mr Fadnavis.

"I will meet the governor tomorrow along with the state party chief, Chandrakant Patil. Our formula has been decided. Whatever disillusionment was there will be weeded out. The people of Maharashtra have given their mandate in the favour of Mahayuti,"  said senior BJP leader Sudhir Munganitwar.
