"Nitin Gadkari can solve Maharashtra Government formation tussle in 2 hours"
Mumbai : The clash of ideologies between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) is not coming to an end, leaving the Maharashtra government process hanging in the middle even after two weeks of results being declared for the Assembly Elections.
While, Shiv Sena had been demanding that the next Maharashtra Chief Minister should be from their party, a new demand has come forward from the party to initiate negotiations.
Shiv Sena leader Kishore Tiwari has said, "I have written a letter to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to initiate and send Nitin Gadkari for negotiations. Nitin Gadkari will be able to resolve the situation within two hours."
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has reaffirmed that the next Maharashtra Chief Minister will be from his party. "The decision on Maharashtra will be taken in Maharashtra, the chief minister will be from the Shiv Sena," Raut told reporters in Mumbai.
Earlier, on Monday, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis met BJP national president Amit Shah in New Delhi to discuss the situation.
Sharad Pawar's NCP has claimed that they have no interest in staking claim to form the government in the state, but they have also not ruled out the possibility of forging an alliance with the Shiv Sena in case the BJP-Sena alliance collapses.
