Indu Bhagat

Mumbai, May 27, 2020: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has called a meeting of Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition partners at the official residence Varsha amidst the political stir in Maharashtra. The meeting is also important in the sense that for the last two days two big BJP leaders have demanded imposition of President’s rule in the state. 

In this meeting, big leaders of all the three parties Shiv Sena, NCP, and Congress can join. The news of this political upheaval gained momentum when NCP supremo Sharad Pawar met Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari. The meeting between Pawar and Koshyari was believed to be important in the backdrop of the recent standoff between the Shiv Sena and Raj Bhavan. On Tuesday, NCP president Sharad Pawar made it clear that the Thackeray government is stable. There is no danger to the state government. The Congress and NCP which are supporting Thackeray government are firm with the government.  

On a question related to Maharashtra politics, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had said on Tuesday, “Supporting the government and running the government is two different things. If the BJP wants to criticize the Maharashtra government, then there is no problem in it, but if it wants to impose the President’s rule, then there is a problem.”
