New Delhi: Amid continuing deadlock over government formation in Maharashtra, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale said he had talked with Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut about a ‘compromise’ to end the face-off with the BJP.

Talking about his proposal of rotational chief minister to senior Sena leader, Athawale said he had suggested for a three-year term for BJP and two year term for the Shiv Sena. The union minister said Raut had then said if the BJP agrees, the Sena could think about it.

“I will discuss this with the BJP,” RPI leader Athawale said.

The Maharashtra impasse has been going on for over 25 days now after the BJP emerged as the single largest party in the state elections. It was expected to comfortably retain power with its ally Shiv Sena. However, the skirmishes over the post of chief minister between the allies broke out and finally the two parties ended the alliance.

The Sena approached the Congress-NCP combine for support. The Congress and the NCP, pre-poll allies, won 44 and 54 seats, respectively. The Sena later withdrew its lone minister Arvind Sawant from the Narendra Modi government. On Saturday, Sena MP Sanjay Raut had announced that the Uddhav Thackeray-led party's exit from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was a "formality".

The Congress and the NCP have already finalised a draft Common Minimum Programme (CMP) to run a possible coalition government with the Sena, and talks on sharing of power are expected to continue. The Sena has been firm on its demand for the post of chief minister.
