Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut to meet Maharashtra Governor today

Mumbai: Senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday said the political impasse over formation of a new government in Maharashtra was like a "chariot stuck in the mud of arrogance".

In the second scenario, Raut said, like in 2014, the NCP could support the BJP in return for "posts" for Supriya Sule at the Centre and Ajit Pawar in the state. "If talks happen, it will only be on the issue of the chief minister's post", Raut told reporters here. But now BJP is going against its word.

While the BJP is firm on their stand that Devendra Fadnavis will become the next Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena is seeking an equal term for the chief minister's post. "This brings us to the question that had Balasaheb Thackeray been alive today would BJP still be so fearless?" he wrote.

The party is adamant on its demand as Uddhav Thackeray after election results reminded BJP that it was now time for the "50-50 formula" for the government formation. There is a need to support the common man by forming the government at its earliest. "We have been given the mandate to sit in the opposition and will fulfil that mandate".

An editorial in the Saamana said that the BJP was threatening the party like Mughals.

To recall, in the recent Maharashtra assembly elections, the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance had won a majority, with the BJP emerging as the single largest party.

"The people have already witnessed their conflicts while they were ruling the state". Interestingly, Chavan pointed fingers at only BJP for the deadlock as he said BJP was responsible for this situation and said the BJP is apparently not fulfilling the promises it made to Sena.

Speaking to media persons, Rawal said, "The BJP workers are angry that first, they (Shiv Sena) fought in Mahayuti and then later changed their position and now have started blackmailing us".

As the standoff between the Bharatiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra continues, a farmer from Beed district has written to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, asking to be Chief Minister. As per sources, Fadnavis is meeting with Shah to seek more assistance from Central government for farmers affected due to unseasonal rain in Maharashtra.
