Maharashtra govt formation: With no consensus achieved between Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress, President’s rule has been imposed
After 19 days of fruitless efforts, President’s rule has been imposed in Maharashtra as Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, and Indian National Congress failed to reach a consensus to form a government. The Bharatiya Janata Party showed its inability to form the government after Governor invited Devendra Fadnavis to form the government. Since then the tussle for power began. Uddhav Thackeray, Sharad Pawar, Sonia Gandhi, and other leaders of the three parties were in talks to reach a solution for the impasse. However, after Shiv Sena failed to provide a letter for support, NCP got an invitation from the governor. After much deliberation and talks, the three parties could not come on the same page and the state had to see the president’s rule.
