The destiny of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra will be decided on the floor of the Legislative Assembly, according to Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar, and the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition will demonstrate its majority in a trust vote.
In addition, Pawar said that the Bharatiya Janata Party was responsible for the crisis that has befallen the Uddhav Thackeray-led administration while speaking at a press conference amid the upheaval brought on by the mutiny of Sena minister Eknath Shinde and many Sena MLAs.
“The Assembly, not Guwahati, will decide the MVA government’s fate” (where the rebels are camping). On the House floor, the MVA will demonstrate its majority, according to Pawar.
He was responding to a query about whether the MVA had become a minority now that the Shinde-led rebel movement was said to have the backing of ten Independent lawmakers in addition to 37 Shiv Sena MLAs.
When questioned about his nephew Ajit Pawar’s assertion that the Bharatiya Janata Party was not involved in the mutiny inside the Sena, Ajit Pawar replied that he disagreed with his nephew.
Ajit Pawar might have made that statement since he is unfamiliar with BJP leaders from outside of Maharashtra. They are people I am familiar with. Even Eknath Shinde claims a national party promised him all support, according to Pawar.
Shinde was solely talking to the BJP, he claimed, because other national parties like the Bahujan Samaj Party, the Communist Party of India-Marxist, the Communist Party of India, the Congress, and the NCP have no part to play in undermining the MVA.
He added that BJP leaders “from Gujarat and Assam will not be coming here to guide them,” and that the dissident MLAs “will have to come back to Mumbai and face the Assembly.”
Pawar also denied claims made by rebel Shiv Sena MLAs that they had trouble securing funding for their districts because the NCP’s Ajit Pawar, who controls the finance ministry, treated them unfairly and the Sena had abandoned its Hindutva philosophy.
