Maharashtra Political Crisis: The Bharatiya Janata Party is keeping a close watch on the political developments in Maharashtra and exploring all options, but is cautious in its approach keeping in mind the past experience in the state. The Maha Vikas Aghadi government was hit by a political crisis on Tuesday morning when more than 25 Shiv Sena MLAs, including minister Eknath Shinde, became “out of reach”. Sources said that the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs shifted to a hotel in Surat as they are unhappy with the party and the MVA government.
A senior BJP functionary said that the party’s central leadership is closely monitoring the situation and will take next steps accordingly. He said, “Before the next step, we have to ensure that the numbers are against the MVA government and more and more Shiv Sena MLAs join Shinde. The cracks are visible in the MVA government and it will fall because of its differences.”
It is learned that the BJP central leadership is counting the numbers and is hoping that Shinde will bring more MLAs to his camp. Once the numbers are confirmed, the BJP will approach the governor with a request to ask the MVA government to prove its majority on the floor of the assembly.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has lost majority: BJP leader
A BJP leader said, “Instead of bringing a no-confidence motion, we will ask the MVA to prove the majority on the floor of the House. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has lost majority due to revolt by Shinde and other MLAs.”
A BJP insider said the party is treading cautiously amid the changing political situation in Maharashtra to avoid a repeat of the misadventures of 2019, when Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and later due to lack of numbers. Reason resigned.
“We are proceeding cautiously and don’t want any misadventures like in 2019. We are trying to form the government in Maharashtra, but only if the numbers are in our favour,” he said.
Amit Shah and JP Nadda met
Earlier, Union Home Minister Amit Shah met BJP chief JP Nadda to discuss the developing political situation in Maharashtra. BJP sources said Nadda and Shah were discussing the changing political situation in the state and the party’s future course of action.
The BJP has dealt a big blow to the ruling MVA alliance by getting all its candidates elected in the Rajya Sabha and Legislative Council elections this month. In the Rajya Sabha elections, the BJP won three seats, while the ruling alliance secured three seats, one each for the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress, while the other Shiv Sena candidate lost. In the Legislative Council elections, the BJP won five, the Shiv Sena and the NCP two each, and the Congress one, while the Congress candidate lost one.
