Shiv Sena will lead next government in Maharashtra, reiterates Sanjay Raut

Amid an ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut on Friday said that a Common Minimum Programme (CMP) will be made between Sena and NCP-Congress, which will be in the interest of the state.

During the press briefing, Raut reiterated that the government will be formed under the leadership of Shiv Sena and the next chief minister of Maharashtra will also be from Sena.

When asked about the different ideologies the Sena and Congress-NCP represent, Raut said, “In past, Atal government was formed in the center in collaboration with the parties having different ideologies. We will have a CMP which will be for the betterment of the state.”

President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday imposed President’s rule in Maharashtra after the Union Cabinet’s recommendation amid uncertainty in the state over government formation.

No political party has been able to form a government after the announcement of assembly poll results on October 24.
