Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said there is no question of going with the BJP if the Maha Vikas Aghadi government falls in Maharashtra.

This comes after the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra coalition went into a crisis mode after minister and Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde and 21 more MLAs moved to a hotel in Surat in BJP-ruled Gujarat. Also Read: Maharashtra Minister Eknath Shinde, Several Shiv Sena MLAs Not Reachable

“We will find a way out of this situation,” Pawar said. He alleged that a third attempt was being made to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra, but expressed confidence that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray would be able to handle the situation. Also Read: We’ve No Role In Maha Political Crisis, Sena’s Internal Matter: State BJP Chief

The former Union minister said he may “meet” Thackeray tonight and will leave for Mumbai soon after the opposition meeting on the joint presidential candidate.

“There are no differences in the alliance and everyone has full faith in Thackeray’s leadership,” he told reporters.

Talking to reporters, the NCP leader said, “We are confident that Uddhav Thackeray will sort it out.” He further stressed that he considered the crisis an “internal matter of the Shiv Sena”, with nothing to do with the other coalition partners, at this point.

According to reports, Eknath Shinde, who has been sulking for a while, wants to be the CM.

The late Dighe, a Shiv Sena stalwart from Thane, was the political mentor of Shinde. Shinde and a few MLAs of the ruling Shiv Sena have gone incommunicado and are camping in Surat, a move putting a question mark on the stability of the Thackeray-led MVA dispensation also comprising NCP and Congress.
