Shiv Sena Elected Leader Eknath Shinde, Heads to Meet Governor

Shiv Sena

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Thursday elected Eknath Shinde as their Legislature Party leader and announced their slated meeting with Maharashtra Governor soon. Aditya Thackeray proposed Shinde’s name for the post and Sunil Prabhu’s name for the post of Chief Whip of the legislature party. The party is scheduled to meet Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, which has sparked speculations. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, however, said the meeting is to “appraise” the Governor of the “situation”. The BJP legislature party met in Mumbai on Wednesday afternoon and elected former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis as the leader of its legislature party. Soon after that, Fadnavis asserted, the mandate was for the “grand alliance” of Shiv Sena-BJP and the two will form the government. But Tuesday was marked with a day-long exchange of rhetoric and counter-rhetoric between the two parties. First, Sena leader Sanjay Raut alleged the BJP was “stooping low”. Then Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis issued a statement rejecting Shiv Sena’s claim of 50-50 formula, which they have been adamant about. (IANS)
