Ramdas Athawale, President Republican Party of India (RPI) on Sunday said the Amit Shah, Home Minister has asked him not to worry about the political turmoil as Amit Shah assures Athawale that BJP and Shiv Sena will come together and for the government in Maharashtra.
Athawale said ‘I told Amit Bhai that if he mediates then a way can be found out to which he replied, don’t worry, everything will be fine. BJP and Shiv Sena will come together to form the government’. He added ‘I think that Shiv Sena should change its stand. Congress is not ready to support the Sena’.
BJP and Shiv Sena received the most seats in Maharashtra, 105 and 56 respectively, it is a huge question as to why Shiv Sena is ready to break all bonds with BJP over power sharing differences.
As BJP told the Governor that they do not the required seats to form a government, the Governor then asked Shiv Sena and NCP to form the government in Maharashtra, however when they could not form the government President’s Rule was imposed in Maharashtra on 12th of November.
Soon after the president rule, the senior leaders of Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena had a meeting in a hotel in Mumbai and talked over the formation of a government.
