Mumbai: While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said it will wait and watch, its leader Sudhir Mungantiwar on Wednesday met Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Sangh headquarter in Mahal area of Nagpur.
When reporters outside the Sangh headquarter sought his reaction on the current political situation in the state, the BJP leader only said, “..Wait and watch”. According to the sources, apart from Mr Bhagwat, the BJP leader also met Sangh general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi to invite them for the wedding of his daughter.
As the tussle between BJP and its ally party continues BJP’s senior leaders are rushing to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s office. As the BJP represents the Sangh Parivar at the national politics, political experts said these meetings will show its impact on the state politics. On November 5, former chief minister Devendra Fadanavis had also visited the RSS headquarter.
On Tuesday, President’s Rule was imposed in Maharashtra, 19 days after the fractured mandate in the state Assembly polls failed to elect a clear winner. The Bharatiya Janata Party, which won maximum 105 seats in the 288-member House, on Sunday declined to stake claim to form government, as its alliance partner Shiv Sena (56) refused to lend support.
The Sena and the NCP (54), the second and third largest blocs in the House, too couldn’t muster requisite numbers to stake claims. The Sena is holding talks with the Congress, which has 44 MLAs, and the NCP to form a possible coalition government.
