New Delhi: Maharashtra is heading towards political uncertainty as four major players the Shiv Sena, BJP and the Congress, NCP are sending a clear message to each other that new permutations, combinations are possible if their old “ideologial” alliance breaks on seat sharing issue.
The state is going to the polls on October 15.
While the BJP is pushing the Shiv Sena to the wall suggesting that the latter is ceased to be its senior ally in the state, the NCP is projecting itself as an equal to the Congress after the Lok Sabha elections.
The Congress which has become weak after the Lok Sabha poll debacle, is confident of becoming main Opposition in the state Assembly, insiders said.
In Maharashra, no single party between the Congress, NCP ,Shiv Sena and the BJP is in a position to get 145 of the total 288 Assembly seats on its own.
If these four parties staking claim on the Chief Ministership even before finalising seat sharing, fight the polls separately, then new permutations and combinations could be possible after the elections.
