After the assembly poll results that were declared on October 24,it has been 14 days yet no sign of government in Maharashtra. It is now learnt that the Shiv Sena has MLA’s have now authorised party chief Uddhav Thackeray to take a “final decision” on government formation in Maharashtra.
According to a report by PTI, Thackeray chaired a meeting of all party MLAs at his residence ‘Matoshree’ in suburban Bandra, where the legislators also reiterated that the formula of “equal sharing of posts and responsibilities” agreed upon before the Lok Sabha polls should be implemented.
“The Sena MLAs passed a resolution authorising Uddhavji to take a final decision regarding government formation,” party legislator Shambhuraje Desai told reporters after the meeting ended. Desai denied that the Sena legislators will be shifted to a hotel in south Mumbai, amid fear of switching sides.
The Shiv Sena has been maintaining that in February this year, before the Lok Sabha polls, it was decided that there will be equal sharing of posts and responsibilities between the party and the BJP. While the Shiv Sena has been insisting on sharing the chief minister’s post, the BJP has rejected it.
