Union Minister & RPI Leader Ramdas Athawale brought the proposal of 3 year CM Post for BJP and 2 year term for Shiv Sena. 'If BJP High Command accepts this proposal, Shiv Sena might consider it. I will discuss about this with the BJP Leadership'.
Earlier, Shiv Sena sought the support of Congress-NCP Combine to form the Government. Congress and NCP bagged 44 and 54 seats respectively in the recent elections. These Two Parties have already finalised a draft Common Minimum Programme to form the coalition government with Shiv Sena. Right now, Talks have been continuing between the three parties on power sharing. Shiv Sena is very particular about the Chief Minister's Post.
Will the new proposal brought by Ramdas Athawale bring Shiv Sena closer to BJP? If Sena forms the government with BJP, There is a strong possibility for completing the full term. If Sena goes with Congress and NCP, What happened in Karnataka might repeat in Maharashtra..!
