After a meeting with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut on Friday said that if the party decides it will get the required numbers to form a stable government in Maharashtra. This comes after Raut met Pawar fuelling speculations of Shiv Sena’s alliance with Congress and NCP to form a government in Maharashtra while keeping the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) out of power.

While talking to the reporters, Raut said that people want the Chief Minister to be from Shiv Sena and if his party decided, they can get numbers to form a stable government.

If Shiv Sena decides, it will get the required numbers to form a stable government in Maharashtra. People have given a majority to Shiv Sena and BJP on the basis of 50-50 formula. The people of Maharashtra want a Chief Minister from Shiv Sena,” said Sanjay Raut.

Meanwhile, there has been no concrete talks with BJP and Shiv Sena regarding the formation of the government in Maharashtra. Amid the crisis, Raut’s meeting with the NCP chief has led to speculations of a possible alliance between Congress-NCP and Shiv Sena.

The power-sharing deal was finalised before the Lok Sabha elections. However, if the other party is not ready, we have other options as well,” said Raut.
