Hindutva ideologue Sambhaji Bhide visits Uddhav Thackeray's residence

However, Bhide failed to meet Thackeray as the Sena chief was not present at his residence. According to the media reports, Bhide’s arrival was unexpected and Thackeray wasn’t home


Amid the deadlock over government formation in Maharashtra, Hindutva ideologue Sambhaji Bhide on Thursday evening went to meet Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. 

However, Bhide failed to meet Thackeray as the Sena chief was not present at his residence. According to the media reports, Bhide’s arrival was unexpected and Thackeray wasn’t home. 

Bhide’s visit comes amid the ongoing conflict between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over power-sharing formula. Shiv Sena has been adamant on its demand to implement the 50-50 power-sharing formula while BJP has maintained that the Chief Minister will be from their party. 

Recently, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis met Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat. After this, the news reports suggested that Bhagwat sent a message to Uddhav Thackeray via senior RSS functionary to form the government with BJP and end the political deadlock.

Earlier, it was learnt that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray was “hurt” because BJP failed to stand on its word and didn’t honour the 50-50 power-sharing deal. 

The current term for the Devendra Fadnavis government ends on November 9. Earlier, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari met Advocate General (AG) Ashutosh Kumbhakoni at Raj Bhavan to discuss the current political situation in the state.
