Twist & turns, Frantic activity in Congress-NCP camp


Mumbai: Every week after the declaration of the meeting election outcomes, the story of presidency formation within the state continues to be a growing one, throwing up new twists at each flip.

Whereas the Bharatiya Janata Celebration (BJP) has chosen to attend and watch the strikes of its ally, the Shiv Sena, the Congress and the NCP have despatched the Sena constructive indicators of help, supplied the latter snaps ties with the BJP.

Upset at these developments, the BJP has left no stone unturned, to safe the help of the utmost variety of legislators. BJP sources have claimed BJP led authorities can be sworn in on November three, on the Mahalakshmi Racecourse grounds.

However now, all eyes are on the Congress excessive command. Will it enable the state unit to help the Sena in authorities formation? If the reply is a no, then it will likely be benefit BJP.

The Shiv Sena, which seemed to be softening its stand on Wednesday, has but once more renewed its demand for 50:50 power-sharing. The BJP has provided it the publish of deputy CM and 16 cupboard berths, a transfer which has irked the Sena no finish.

In a veiled assault on the BJP, Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray stated on Thursday, ‘‘Mukhyamantri padacha amarpatta gheooon kuni aalele naahi (Nobody has come wearing an ‘immortal CM’ tag)”. This clearly means the Sena is exploring different choices.

Instantly after election because the Sena’s legislature get together chief, Eknath Shinde too has underscored the necessity for an settlement between each events.

The Sena’s mouthpeice Saamna, too, in its editorial, had made a robust pitch for the CM publish. “The BJP’s coverage for its allies is Use and Throw,” it declared in its editorial.

A Sena delegation met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, ostensibly, to demand instant aid for rain-affected farmers. However this assembly is being seen as a show of energy earlier than the governor, preserving in thoughts the opportunity of authorities formation.

Uddhav Thackeray couldn’t resist voicing his disappointment and stated he’s but to listen to from the BJP. The BJP had claimed that CM Devendra Fadnavis would personally name Uddhav shortly.

However as an alternative of reaching out to the Sena, it has hinted on the appointment of two deputy CMs, one from the Sena and one other from the BJP.

The proposal is to nominate Chandrakant Patil as deputy CM; he can even be No.2 within the cupboard, whereas the third place can be given to the Sena nominee.

This transfer will undermine the significance of the publish given to Sena and create a buffer between its nominee and the CM within the type of Chandrakant Patil.
