As BJP Steps Back, Guv Invites Shiv Sena to Form Govt

  • Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray arrives at Hotel Retreat in Madh Malad West to meet party MLAs

"The Governor has, therefore, asked the leader of elected members of the second largest party, Shiv Sena, Eknath Shinde, to convey its willingness and ability to form the government", the statement said.

"We have just received the letter from the governor", Chandrakant Patil, who is state BJP president, said.

The Shiv Sena's claim of 50-50 government formula, asking for the chief minister's post of two and half years has not been accepted by the BJP.

He also welcomed the decision of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to invite the BJP to form government in the state.

The development came hours after the BJP, which emerged the largest party with 105 seats in the Assembly polls, stated that it would not stake claim to form the government as it did not have the supporting numbers in the 288-member House. The NCP and Congress won 54 and 44 seats, respectively. "This time, Sena president Uddhav Thackeray will decide the next chief minister of Maharashtra", he said. The Sena has insisted on rotating the chief minister's post saying that the two parties agreed to it before the April-May national elections as part of a "50-50" power-sharing agreement.

With the BJP backing off from the race, the onus to form government now rests with the Sena, which has indicated that it might rope in the Congress and the NCP to prop up a government.

Devendra Fadnavis in Mumbai, November 8, 2019.

Amid uncertainty over government formation in Maharashtra, a poster calling for Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to be made Chief Minister has been put up outside Matoshree, the Thackeray's Mumbai residence. He said that Sena has betrayed the mandate of the people of Maharashtra.

The Congress in Maharashtra on Sunday said it didn't want President's Rule in the state which is in the midst of a political crisis in view of the BJP's announcement that it would not form government. "The Shiv Sena will declare its strategy if no one else is able to form the government".

The Shiv Sena has shifted most of its 56 MLAs to a hotel in suburban Malad, apparently to guard them against "poaching" attempts.

Without naming Fadnavis, Raut, in a fresh attack on the BJP leader amid the ongoing war of words between the saffron allies, said, "When ways of threatening and seeking political support don't work, it is time to accept that Hitler is dead and the looming clouds of slavery have disappeared". "We will see how the day progresses", said the Rajya Sabha member. "I don't think MLAs of any party would defect".
