Maharashtra Governor invites BJP to indicate willingness to form government in state

MNS chief Raj Thackeray visits Kataria High School on Saturday

According to Raj Bhavan statement, the governor asked Devendra Fadnavis, who is the leader of the state BJP's legislature wing, to "indicate the willingness and ability of his party to form the government".

So there has to be a set government, democratically set up and BJP although was given the mandate to rule, but since it fell apart from its coalition partner, it is unable to reach the figure of 145 which is required.

Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Sunday invited the Shiv Sena, the second largest party, to stake claim to form government, hours after the BJP declined such attempt. This experiment, they could not dare to do in Maharashtra. The Sena has insisted on rotating the chief minister's post saying that the two parties agreed to it before the April-May national elections as part of a "50-50" power-sharing agreement.

On posters put up by Sena workers near Thackeray's residence in Mumbai demanding that he be the chief minister, Raut said, "Uddhav Thackeray is the Shiv Sena leader and he will take an appropriate decision at the right time".

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Raut, an MP, said that the party's priority is to ensure a stable government in Maharashtra.

Jeff Sessions Expected To Announce Run For His Old Senate Seat
Ken Brown, a 77-year-old retired Air Force colonel from Cullman County, has supported Sessions in the past, but won't this time. South Carolina GOP Senator Lindsey Graham said Sessions was a "great senator" but was not getting into Alabama politics.

The Shiv Sena has shifted most of its 56 MLAs to a hotel in suburban Malad, apparently to guard them against "poaching" attempts.

Senior Congress leader Ashok Chavan said newly-elected MLAs of the party will seek advice from the party high-command over its future political stand in the state.

"Everyone wants to end the politics of revenge, subservience and playing dirty tricks", Raut said. Like, the Sena and BJP differ on the issue of border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka over Belagavi (Belgaum) district, Raut said. "Sharad Pawar (NCP president) will also attend that meeting", he added. Devendra Fadnavis has maintained that no "50-50 formula" had been agreed to.

Without naming Fadnavis, Raut, in a fresh attack on the BJP leader amid the ongoing war of words between the saffron allies, said, "When ways of threatening and seeking political support don't work, it is time to accept that Hitler is dead and the looming clouds of slavery have disappeared".

Ever since the Maharashtra Assembly election results were declared on October 24, not a single party or alliance came forward to shoulder the government formation exercise owing to the tussle between Sena and BJP over rotational CM's post. "We will see how the day progresses", said the Rajya Sabha member.
