Senior Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday said, "BJP should come to Shiv Sena only when it is ready to share the post of Chief Minister in Maharashtra with its ally party." Senior Sena leader Sanjay Raut Media reporters in Mumbai said that BJP should not misuse the provision of caretaker government and should not stay in power in Maharashtra .
The deadlock over the next government in the state is still going on. The Shiv Sena spokesperson said that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis should resign as the term of the current assembly ends (on 9 November).
In response to a question about the possibility of Union minister and BJP leader Nitin Gadkari visiting Mumbai to visit Matoshree (Thackeray family's residence) to break the deadlock over the government formation, Raut said that the Shiv Sena's stand to BJP only then When it is ready to share the post of Chief Minister.
Raut asked, Gadkari is a resident of Mumbai. It is not a big deal for them to come here. He will go to his house. Did he tell you that he is bringing a letter regarding giving the Shiv Sena the post of Chief Minister for two and a half years? "
Let us know that both BJP and Shiv Sena have enough seats to form the next government by alliance, but there is a tussle between the two for equal sharing of power, especially for the post of Chief Minister.
Shiv Sena claims that before the Lok Sabha elections in February, both parties had decided that there would be equal sharing of posts in the state. According to the party, the BJP has not followed the system of sharing the chief minister's post with its allies.
There has been a situation of deadlock over the formation of the government since the assembly election results in Maharashtra on 24 October. The BJP has rejected Shiv Sena's demand to share the post of Chief Minister for two-and-a-half years.
In the assembly elections held on October 21 for 288 seats in Maharashtra, BJP and Shiv Sena alliance got 161 seats, which is more than the figure of 145 required to form the government, but due to the ongoing deadlock over which party will be the Chief Minister, so far new Government has not been formed. BJP has got 105 seats, Shiv Sena 56, NCP 54 and Congress 44 seats.
