Will Maharashtra be under Presidential rule?

The tussle for power in Maharashtra between allies Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Shiv Sena showed no signs of being near a resolution on Wednesday with an end-of-the-week deadline for government formation closing in and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) saying it would prefer to sit in the Opposition, ruling out the prospect of backing a Sena-led government .

A BJP delegation of state party chief Chandrakant Patil and senior leader Sudhir Mungantiwar will meet governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Thursday.
But the Sena, which remains adamant on its demand of sharing the chief minister’s position on a rotational basis, a demand that the BJP has categorically rejected, said it had received nonew proposal from the BJP to negotiate on.

The BJP and the Sena have been locked in a standoff over the post of chief minister since the state assembly results on October 24 threw up a hung House, with the BJP securing 105 seats, the Sena 56, the NCP 54 and the Congress 44. The assembly has 288 seats.

Since then, the BJP has sought to bring the Sena to the negotiating table several times, even offering an equal split of ministerial berths – which would mean a gain of six for the regional party from the outgoing cabinet – but the Sena has dismissed the proposals.

Instead, Raut sent feelers to the NCP and the Congress but these appeared to have been rebuffed by NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday.
The term of the outgoing legislative assembly ends on Saturday, which is the deadline for government formation. Any further delay, experts warn, could plunge the state into political uncertainty and lead to President’s Rule.
