Mumbai: Amid ongoing tension between BJP and Shiv Sena over government formation, the ruling party will meet the governor of Maharashtra today.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Vijay Namdevrao Wadettiwar said that newly-elected party MLAs in the state do not want to see the BJP government in Maharashtra.
Speaking to the media, the Congress leader said that all the MLAs are of the view that the BJP should not be allowed to form the government as they did nothing for the farmers despite running a coalition government for the last five years. He further questioned the BJP about the suicide of 16,000 farmers in Maharashtra.
Vadettiwar made this statement after a meeting of the State Congress Core Committee. In response to talks on forming the government with the help of Congress and NCP, Shiv Sena said that its party has not received any proposal from the Uddhav Thackeray-led party.
“We will mull over the proposal if we get any, but the final call will be taken by the central party leadership,” he added.
