Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislative party leader Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday said that he is still hopeful that the state will soon get a stable government and termed the imposition of President’s rule unfortunate.

“Despite a clear mandate, a government could not be formed and President’s rule had to be imposed. This is extremely unfortunate. I hope the state gets a stable government soon,” Mr Fadnavis said in a statement.

 

The former chief minister said the state is facing several issues. “Providing relief and assistance to farmers who faced crop losses after unseasonal rains is a key issue. Due to political instability, investment in the state could be impacted and people would face problems. I hope all parties will seriously consider this situation, and the state will get a stable government,” he said.

The BJP core committee meeting was held in Mumbai in the evening to discuss the current political situation in the state.

After the meeting, senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungatiwar said, “Imposition of President’s rule is an insult to the mandate of the people and this happened because of the stubbornness of some people who disrespected that mandate. We are keeping a close watch on evolving political situation.”

 

Referring to the Uddhav Thackeray-led party’s efforts to cobble up a possible government with the support of the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Mr Mungantiwar said, “Despite getting a clear mandate, we didn’t explore alternatives like our ally who after the poll results talked about having other options. If they were so confident of forming a government why they failed to get the letters of support?”
