Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Chandrakant Patil on Monday said that if the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government falls, his party will not join hands with Shiv Sena and will prefer contesting the mid-term elections. 

While addressing the media at BJP headquarters in Mumbai, Patil said that the BJP is not planning to topple the Congress-NCP-Sena government claiming that it will fall due to the internal conflict. 

“There is no question of the BJP bringing down the MVA government but it will fall on its own. BJP is not interested in joining hands with Shiv Sena. The BJP will prepare for mid-term elections,” Maharashtra BJP President Chandrakant Patil. 

This comes after Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray alleged that the BJP was planning to launch 'Operation Lotus' to topple his government. 

The senior BJP leader further stated that Shiv Sena was an ally to the BJP till 2019 assembly elections but it “unethically” changed sides to form the government with Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). 

Patil also asserted that the Shiv Sena managed to win 54 assembly seats because of the alliance with BJP. 

The rift in the MVA government had widened amid the difference of opinion over the proposed National Population Register (NPR) and the Elgar Parishad-Bhim Koregaon violence case. 

On the issue of implementing NPR, Congress and NCP have maintained their opposition against the same while media reports stated that CM Uddhav Thackeray will implement NPR but not National Register of Citizens (NRC). 

However, NCP chief Sharad Pawar has maintained his strong opposition to Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), NRC and NPR saying that they are “divisive” while Congress has said that NPR is “NRC is disguise”.
