Mumbai, November 25, 2019: BJP has the responsibility of proving majority in Maharashtra Assembly, but worried are Congress-NCP and Shiv Sena. After big dent in Maratha satrap Sharad Pawar’s clan, everyone has started seeing their political clans unsafe. If you look at the developments, even the five star hotels in Mumbai are no longer safe.

On Saturday night, a member of the Shiv Sena Union, which operates in a hotel near the airport, called and told senior Sena leaders that some NCP MLAs were staying with Prasad Lad, a BJP MLA. Shiv Sena gave this news to NCP President Sharad Pawar. Pawar immediately sent his three leaders and opened the room there and called both of his MLAs to him.

Since Saturday night, all the NCP MLAs have been kept at Hotel Renaissance in Powai. All the MLAs of Shiv Sena are in Hotal Lalit, while in JW Marriott of Juhu, Congress. Hotel Renaissance created an uproar Sunday evening when the staff of a security agency was found strolling around the place where the MLAs stayed. Sharad Pawar’s trusted NCP MLA Jitendra Ahwad created a lot of uproar over this.

Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena worries

Senior Congress leader and former Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has alleged that BJP has already booked rooms in all hotels in Mumbai. Wherever Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena MLAs are being kept, there are attempts to contact the MLAs through intercom.

Both Chavan and NCP believe that the BJP can go to any extent to meet the number of MLAs it needs. The BJP is also being accused of starting Operation Lotus in Maharashtra. A few days ago, BJP leader Narayan Rane spoke of starting an effort to form a government, it was not taken seriously.

But now the concern of Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena has increased further after the BJP officially gave Narayan Rane, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Ganesh Naik and Babanrao Pachpute the responsibility of contacting the MLAs of other parties. Narayan Rane came to the BJP from the Congress recently and has been in the Shiv Sena before that. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil had earlier been the Leader of Opposition in the Assembly on behalf of the Congress.

Do not trust any of your members

After a strong candidate like Ajit Pawar split into the BJP, no party is able to trust any of its members. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, who was responsible for the anti-party leader in the Congress for five years, switched sides to the BJP before the Lok Sabha elections for the safe future of his son. The legislators feel good and security only in staying with a stable government at the center and the state.

They are aware that a stable government can only come in a government formed with a large party, not a Khichdi government. The early elections are scaring every MLA. Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena leaders do not know with whom will the MLAs staying with them in five-star hotels go to the House today?
