Mumbai: Hectic parleys between the key players are expected in Maharashtra today, even after over two weeks since the assembly election results were announced on October 24.
Both BJP and Shiv Sena will have to reach agreement by tonight, failing which the state might head for President’s Rule.
BJP with 105 seats and Shiv Sena with 56, have so far failed to reach an agreement over power sharing as BJP rejected Shiv Sena’s demand of Chief Minister’s post for 2 and a half year each.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said in a press conference yesterday, that there was no change in his party’s stand and reiterated the demand for rotational Chief Minister’s post.
Sources said, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari is likely to meet Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackray this afternoon to take a final call on the formation of the government in the state.
