Shiv Sena Says haven't received seat-sharing proposal as BJP set to meet Maharashtra Governor today
A fortnight after the announcement of the Assembly election results, prospects of a new government being formed in Maharashtra have suddenly brightened, with BJP leaders slated to meet the governor today. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar following a meeting with Sanjay Raut snubbed the Shiv Sena leader’s claim of having the support of 175 MLAs. He once again asserted that the NCP and Congress would prefer to sit in the opposition, ruling out speculation of the party joining hands with the Shiv Sena.
The developments came after the Rashtriya Swayamseval Sangh (RSS), touted as the BJP’s parent organization, threw its weight being Nitin Gadkari to broker peace with an adamant Shiv Sena and break the deadlock. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, whose party has refused to give up its claim on the post of the rotational chief minister, said his party chief Uddhav Thackeray is yet to get any proposal from the BJP.
