Looks like BJP-Shiv Sena is not in a mood to compromise on their demands. While Shiv Sena is demanding the BJP party to follow the initial arrangement to enjoy the seats and ruling time with a 50:50 ratio.

While talking on this dispute, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said: 'We believe in the alliance with BJP as we contested the polls jointly. But the BJP should not compel us to look out for the alternatives to form the government'.

'No one is a saint in politics,' he added. This statement hinted that Shiv Sena might join hands with other parties too.

'Ahead of the Assembly polls, the BJP requested Sena for more share of seats because of large number of turncoats. Sena chief ( Uddhav) Thackeray agreed to it, hence they contested on 164 seats and the Sena on 124. We never lie in politics, even if it is for gaining power,' he observed.

'We will see how they do not share the post of the chief minister. Both the parties agreed on a 50:50 power-sharing formula. There is no need to explain it in detail,' he added talking about the power-sharing.
