BJP Shiv Sena alliance

Addressing a press conference after meeting Governor Koshyari, BJP's Maharashtra unit chief Chandrakant Patil said, "We will not form the government in the state."

As the deadline for government formation in Maharashtra is fast approaching, Shiv-Sena is not ready to settle for any anything less than an equal share of power as Sanjay Raut on Wednesday outrightly denied the possibility of reaching any new settlement with BJP except the one (50:50) that was allegedly agreed upon prior to polls.

The BJP has emerged as the single largest party by winning 105 seats in the recently concluded Maharashtra Assembly polls while the Shiv Sena has got 56 seats in the 288-member state Assembly.

Fadnavis has already asked officials to act as a mediator between insurance companies and farmers to get early and maximum assistance and ensure not a single farmer be kept deprived of assistance.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI that the party is firm on its demand to equally share the tenure of the Chief Minister's post with the BJP. As Shiv Sena continues to push for its demand for 50-50 formula, ally BJP has said it will not share the Chief Minister's post, currently held by Devendra Fadanvis.

Kakade further stated that under such circumstances no party will go with Shiv Sena, hence, it won't go as an opposition party so, the party will come in alliance with BJP only.
