As the BJP and Shiv Sena battle to form government in Maharashtra, A farm activist Kishore Tiwari, who joined the Shiv Sena ahead of the assembly polls has found a way to solve the crisis. He has reportedly in a PTI report said that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat should depute Union minister Nitin Gadkari to resolve the power-tussle between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Sena.
In a letter to Bhagwat, Tiwari said the RSS chief should take a serious note of the situation and intervene to end the deadlock over government formation in Maharashtra.
He said people were worried over the Sangh’s ‘silence’ on the issue.
“Gadkari will be able to resolve the situation within two hours,” Tiwari said, when asked about his letter to Bhagwat.
Claiming that Gadkari is being ‘sidelined’ by the BJP, Tiwari said if the party or Amit Shah authorise Gadkari to intervene, he can resolve the impasse in two hours.
Tiwari, founder of Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti, an NGO which highlighted large-scale suicides by farmers in Maharashtra, specially those from his Vidarbha region, switched over from the BJP to the Shiv Sena ahead of the October 24 polls.
