Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Tuesday showed no signs of reaching an agreement with BJP over formation of government in Maharashtra. Claiming to change the face of Maharashtra politics, party MP and spokesman Sanjay Raut said the state will have a "chief minister from Shiv Sena only". Addressing a press conference today, Raut said that Shiv Sena has not caused a hungama (chaos) and can't be held responsible for non-formation of government in the state."This is a fight for justice and truth...victory will be ours", Raut said.
This comes after posters were today put up in parts of Mumbai demanding Aaditya Thackeray for CM. Aaditya Thackeray, son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackery, won from Worli assembly seat in Mumbai by 67 thousand votes. He defeated Suresh Mane of NCP by a margin of 67,427 votes.
Reports say Shiv Sena is not pleased with the BJP's decision to deny it major ministries and not giving Aaditya Thackeray the post of chief minister.
While the BJP-Sena stalemate persisting, the Sena has claimed support of 175 legislators in the 288-member Assembly.
Meanwhile, amid the stalemate between the Shiv Sena and the BJP, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar had a hour-long meeting with Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi on Monday. Addressing the media after the meeting, Pawar, flanked by Ajit Pawar and Prafull Patel, said the "NCP-Congress has been mandated to sit in the opposition". However, he also said öne predict the future".
