Amid political crisis in Maharashtra, BJP adopts wait and watch policy

Amid the political drama in Maharashtra, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sudhir Mungantiwar on Monday evening said that the party has adopted a policy of “wait and watch” as of now. 

Senior BJP leaders including Sudhir Mungantiwar, Ashish Shelar, Vinod Tawde and Sanjay Kure were present at a meeting which was held at Caretaker Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ residence. 

While talking to the media, Mungantiwar said that they are closely monitoring the political developments in Maharashtra and the BJP has adopted a wait and watch policy for now. 

We will act at a favourable moment. BJP is closely following the political developments and therefore, we have decided to adopt a wait and watch policy,” said Sudhir Mungantiwar.

BJP held its core committee meeting on Monday. In the meeting, the discussions were held on the developments happening throughout the day. 

BJP had earlier refused to stake claim to form the government in Maharashtra saying that they don’t have the numbers. BJP blamed Shiv Sena of “disrespecting” the people. 

Later, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari invited Shiv Sena. However, Shiv Sena failed to submit the requisite letter of support from the alliance partners (NCP and Congress) after claiming stakes.

As this happened, Maharashtra Governor Koshyari invited the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to stake a claim. NCP leaders including Ajit Pawar informed the Governor that they will take a call on this after discussions with its ally Congress.
