Mumbai: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders are looking at the possibilities of forming the government in Maharashtra following the party's good show in the Assembly elections. There were reports of BJP reaching out to the Sena as the party might not get majority in the state and discussions are also on having rotational chief minister, say sources.

Senior BJP leaders Devendra Fadnavis, Vinod Tawde and Om Mathur also spoke party President Amit Shah to discuss the scenario.

BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis said, "We have always said that Shiv Sena is not our opponent."
