RPI (A) chief Ramdas Athawale provides new formula for BJP, Shiv Sena

Amid the ongoing political deadlock in Maharashtra, Republican Party of India (A) chief Ramdas Athawale on Monday provided a new formula to resolve the already intense conflict between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 

While talking to the media, Athawale said that he had talked with Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut suggesting three-years Chief Ministership for BJP and two-years for Shiv Sena. 

...Sanjay Raut informed me that if BJP agrees, Shiv Sena will think about it. I will discuss this with the BJP," said Athawale. 

Athawale, who is in Delhi to attend the ongoing winter session of Parliament, said that he was still hoping for a deal with Shiv Sena. RPI (A) is part of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Earlier, Minister of State (MoS) chief Ramdas Athawale also informed that he had asked BJP President Amit Shah to mediate.

Amit Shah told me that everything will be fine and the BJP will form the government with Shiv Sena,” claimed Athawale.
