NCP Chief Sharad Pawar also stated that several ‘rebel MLAs’ will return to their original party
The newly-formed Ekanth Shinde government is now a centre of all controversy among the politicians all over the country. Recently, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar assumed that the Maharashtra govt might fall soon and he gave this reason to back his statement.
Making this statement addressing the NCP legislators and other leaders, Pawar stated, “The newly-formed government in Maharashtra may fall in the next six months, hence all should be ready for mid-term polls,” according to an NCP leader who attended the meeting.
He also said, “Pawar said that many rebel legislators who are supporting Shinde are not happy with the current arrangement. Once the ministerial portfolios are distributed, their unrest will come out, which will ultimately result in the collapse of the government.”
Pawar also explained, “The failure of this experiment will lead to several rebel MLAs returning to their original party. If we have merely six months in our hand, NCP legislators should spend more time in their respective assembly constituencies.”
On the other hand, the deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday lashed out at the rivals after the Ekanth Shinde government managed to win the floor test with 164 votes in the 288-member house. He also called that the newly formed government is an “ED government”, he stated, “Yes, it is an ED government – the Eknath-Devendra government.”
Fadnavis also slammed the rivals in his earlier address, “Earlier, we had the majority with the alliance but could not form the government. Now a true Shiv Sainik has become the chief minister.”
