Amid the speculations of coalition crisis, Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister Nawab Malik on Thursday said that the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government is stable and strong and will complete its five-year term. 

The minister said that the MVA government has completed six months and is strong and stable. After Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray took oath as Maharashtra Chief Minister on November 28, 2019, the BJP leaders had said that the government will not last long. 

The MVA government was formed by three ideological different parties - Congress, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Shiv Sena. It has completed six months of formation and will complete its five-year term, Malik said. 

Malik, the NCP spokesperson, said that the government wouldn’t fall just because the BJP is gossiping about it. The MVA government was formed on the basis of a common minimum programme (CMP) which was drafted by the three alliance partners, he added. 

“The government is currently fighting the COVID-19 outbreak in Maharashtra. We will overcome it and will run the government properly,” Malik asserted. 

Earlier, BJP MP Narayan Rane met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and demanded the imposition of President’s rule in the state owing to the “failure” of the Shiv Sena-led MVA government in handling the coronavirus situation in the state. 

However, Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Maharashtra legislative assembly, Devendra Fadnavis distanced himself from the demand and said that the BJP was involved in the same. 

Fadnavis, however, said that the opposition was not trying to destabilise but pressurise the ruling government over its COVID-19 handling in Maharashtra. 

Earlier, the MVA ministers including state Transport Minister Anil Parab held a presser and refuted the claims made by Devendra Fadnavis regarding the aid provided by the centre to Maharashtra. 

On Tuesday, Fadnavis claimed that the centre has provided the state government with more than ₹28,000 crores. However, MVA said that they have received nothing so far.
