As the political stir in Rajasthan intensified, the jolts were felt in Maharashtra as well where Congress, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Shiv Sena have formed a government. 

On Monday night, NCP chief Sharad Pawar met Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to discuss the ongoing crisis in Rajasthan. According to sources, Maharashtra Congress President Balasaheb Thorat had also met Thackeray on the same day at Matoshree. 

However, the BJP denies any signs of ‘Operation Lotus’ which several claims that it had initiated in Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh earlier. The BJP leaders in Maharashtra have reportedly warned of a “surprise” in October which has generated speculations that it may attempt to topple the Uddhav Thackeray government. 

Pawar and Thorat rushing to Matoshree amid the crisis in Rajasthan indicate that MVA government thinks BJP’s “surprise” in October could be an attempt to topple the Maharashtra government. 

The BJP has tried to corner the MVA government over its handling of the COVID-19 crisis in Maharashtra and has tried to highlight the differences among the three allies. Chandrakant Patil, BJP’s state unit chief, has recently alleged corruption during COVID-19 management. 

However, leaders from the alliance have expressed that the coordination between the MVA allies is fine now and earlier the problems occurred because the Chief Minister was dedicated in the fight against COVID-19 outbreak. 

In an interview with ‘Saamana’, Pawar has expressed confidence in the functioning of the MVA government and said that the government will complete its five-year term. Speaking about the ‘Operation Lotus’, the NCP chief said that it will never succeed in Maharashtra. 

He expressed that ‘Operation Lotus’ was an exercise to weaken the democratically elected government and will not succeed in Maharashtra.
