BJP President Amit Shah likely to visit Mumbai on November 2

Union Minister Amit Shah had earlier planned to visit Mumbai on October 30 but the same was cancelled due to the ongoing rift between Shiv Sena and BJP


Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah may visit Mumbai on November 2, 2019, to resolve the ongoing tussle over power-sharing between Shiv Sena and BJP in Maharashtra. The Union Home Minister may also hold talks with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and top BJP leaders in Maharashtra.

The people of Maharashtra have given a majority to the BJP and Shiv Sena alliance. However, since the assembly election results were declared, Shiv Sena is keen on pressing its demand to implement 50-50 power-sharing formula in order to form government in Maharashtra. 

While asserting that Devendra Fadnavis will be the Chief Minister, BJP has offered 13 portfolios to Shiv Sena along with Deputy Chief Minister post. However, the latter is adamant on its demand to share the power equally. Amit Shah had earlier planned to visit Mumbai on October 30 but the same was cancelled due to the ongoing rift. Meanwhile, BJP working President JP Nadda came to Mumbai but the issue of power-sharing has not been resolved yet. 

After electing their respective legislature party leaders, the MLAs from Shiv Sena and BJP MLA met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari on different occasions.
