Has the political crisis in the neighboring state of Maharashtra reached the burning point/ Are we going to see a change in government? Is the current Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi(MHA) alliance government on the verge of collapsing any time soon? The ongoing developments say the same.
The political drama started to unfold when the rebel MLAs and Ministers waged a war against Shiv Sena and the alliance. A strong leader from Shiv Sena, Eknath Shinde became the throne in the flesh for the party and is making the government fear him. National media is saying that the rebel Minister has more than 40 MLAs with him and the number is enough to topple the government.
Following the political drama, all the fingers are now being pointed at the saffron party Bharatiya Janata Party. Besides Shiv Sena, the parties like NCP and TMC are also targeting the BJP for its alleged role in the row.
Adding fuel to this Shiv Sena Rebel Minister Eknath Shinde who is giving sleepless nights to the government alleged that he doesn't want the government to be dissolved but all he wants is to see Shiv Sena join hands with the former ally BJP and form the government.
His comments made the opinion strong that the BJP is behind this and having fun looking at Shiv Sena going through the tough time. Ever since Shiv Sena and Congress joined hands to form an alliance, a section of Shiv Sena supporters and a few legislators are not happy with this given the contrasting ideologies.
On top of this, Balasaheb Thackeray, Uddhav Thackerayâ€™s father who founded Shiv Sena was a strong critic of Congress and said he cannot walk with the party that has Scoundrels.
With a few Shiv Sena leaders unhappy with the shift in the ideology of the party, the BJP reportedly hit the bull's eye by highlighting how Shiv Sena lost its Right-wing ideology for the sake of government. Eknath Shinde, who joined the politics seeing Balasaheb Thackeray could not digest the change in Shiv Sena's ideology.
Encashing the anger of the Shiv Sena rebel leader, BJP went into touch and with his supporters, he started a big insider war in the Maharashtra government.
Since coming to power, BJP has been trying to come to power by hook or crook. Starting with Bihar, Karnataka, and Arunachal Pradesh, the list goes on. Maharashtra is on the verge of becoming another state.
