Maharashtra BJP meet on govt formation inconclusive
Mumbai: The core committee meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party for government formation in Maharashtra remained inconclusive here on Sunday afternoon party leaders said.
Former minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said the meeting discussed various aspects pertaining to Governor B.S. Koshyari’s invite to the BJP to consider forming the government by virtue of being the single largest party.
However, there was no outcome of the meeting and now a decision of the central BJP is awaited.
After the central party’s indication is received, it will be discussed again at a meeting later this evening.
Thereafter, a final decision will be taken on the Governor’s proposal and conveyed to Raj Bhavan, Mungantiwar said.
Meanwhile, Sena top leaders, including President Uddhav Thackeray, Aditya Thackeray and others held meetings with their legislators currently staying under security at a five-star hotel at Madh Island in Malad, northwest Mumbai.
Similarly, top central and state Congress leaders are holding informal consultation with their legislators at a secure location in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will have a meeting with all its MLAs in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The political activity in the state intensified after the Governor’s Saturday late-evening invitation to BJP to express it’s willingness and capabilities to form the next government in the state.
The tenure of the last Assembly expired in the midnight of November 9-10.
