Devendra Fadnavis, Former Chief Minister and BJP leader claimed that the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) had wanted to join hands with the BJP two years back. However, he added that this is not the appropriate time to talk of fall or change in a government, especially in a state like Maharashtra, which is dealing with the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country.

Fadnavis, in a press conference, made these claims. He further said that this is not the ideal time to raise questions regarding the management but to point out the shortcomings with respect to the coronavirus. He added that what needs to be done is to chalk out a plan to work with shortcomings and put forward the opinions to the government for them to understand the ramifications.  

Devendra Fadnavis who attended the press conference was in Pune city and the adjoining Pimpri-Chinchwad to review the COVID-19 situation. In a statement, he said that the testing capacities have to be ramped up in the city to deal with the rising number of cases of coronavirus.  

In the past, the Maharashtra assembly elections have been one of the most riveting elections of all times. The BJP and the Shiv Sena had secured a comfortable majority in the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections. However, they were unable to form the government as the BJP refused to accept the demand of a rotational CM proposed by the Shiv Sena. According to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, the BJP leadership had given a promise in this context, however, this has been refuted by Amit Shah and Devendra Fadnavis.

The President’s Rule was further imposed in Maharashtra since none of the major political parties could gather enough numbers for the government formation post the election results. On November 22, 2019, NCP stalwart Sharad Pawar confirmed that Uddhav Thackeray had been chosen to lead the government of Maharashtra and a three-party collation of Congress, NCP and Shiv-Sena called Maha Vikas Agadi was formed
