Shiv Sena MLAs on Thursday decided that the party will remain firm on its demand to have a rotational Chief Minister in Maharashtra and party chief Uddhav Thackeray will take a final call in the matter. 

This comes after all newly elected Sena MLAs participated in a meeting held at Matoshree. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray conducted the meeting and the Independent MLAs including Bacchu Kadu were also present. 

As this happened, sources informed that the arrangements are being made to shift Sena MLAs into a five-star hotel near Matoshree. However, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut had denied such claims saying that these are rumours and those spreading should worry about their MLAs.

…we don’t have to shift our MLAs, it is all a rumour. Our MLAs are devoted to the party. Those who are spreading such rumours should care about their legislators,” said Sanjay Raut. 

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut earlier this morning reiterated that the Chief Minister will be from their party and the people of Maharashtra also want the same. 

Since the declaration of assembly election results in Maharashtra, the government formation is witnessing a deadlock as the tussle between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has intensified over power-sharing. 

In its editorial, Shiv Sena accused its ally BJP of poaching MLAs and using “money power” to end the deadlock over government formation. 

Meanwhile, senior BJP leaders also held a meeting at the party’s Maharashtra unit President Chandrakant Patil’s residence. A delegation of the BJP has reached at Raj Bhavan to meet Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
