New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday reached BJP chief J.P. Nadda’s residence in the national capital to discuss the developing political situation in Maharashtra. Shinde and other Shiv Sena MLAs have revolted against the party and moved to a hotel in Surat in Gujarat.
Sources in the BJP said that Nadda and Shah were discussing the changing political situation in Maharashtra and the party’s future course of action. It is learnt that both the leaders have discussed the next move of the BJP and whether the numbers are with the party or not. “Party likely to move a no-confidence motion against Maha Vikas Agadhi government to prove Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has lost the majority,” a party insider said.
Sources also said that instead of rushing to form a government in Maharashtra, the BJP will ensure that numbers are in its favour. At least 25 MLAs of Shiv Sena are camping in a hotel in Surat. Sources said they are dissatisfied and unhappy with the MVA government. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has also left for Delhi to deliberate the political crisis with the central leadership.
Sources also said that the next month’s Presidential election is also being discussed between Nadda and Shah. The BJP Parliamentary Board meeting is likely to take place this evening to discuss the party presidential nominee. The Congress also sent its state in-charge H.K. Patil to Mumbai. The party leaders also met at Balasaheb Thorat’s residence in Mumbai to discuss the political situation.
