Both parties contested the recently culminated assembly polls in alliance but could not reach the halfway figure in the 288-member Assembly. Maharashtra came under President's Rule on November 9 after all parties failed to form the government in the state.

President's Rule is in effect in Maharashtra, where all the parties failed to form the government following the recently culminated assembly polls.

Vashishtha Narayan Singh was born on April 2, 1942 in Basantpur village of Bhojpur district in Bihar. He graduated from Patna Science College. Singh received his Ph D on Cycle Vector Space Theory in the United States of America.

Maharashtra came under the President's Rule yesterday after President Ram Nath Kovind gave his approval for the requisite notification.

Although, Raut did not confirm whether Aaditya Thackeray or Eknath Shinde will be the party's chief ministerial candidate but added, "the party chief (Uddhav Thackeray) is capable of taking this decision."

The BJP and Shiv Sena, who are partners in the ruling alliance in Maharashtra, had fought the assembly polls together. While the BJP emerged as the single largest party in the recently held elections, it is yet to stake a claim for government formation.

Shiv Sena is apparently putting all its weight behind its demand of making Aaditya Thackeray as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

Shiv Sena has insisted that the two parties had a '50-50' power-sharing agreement before the elections.
