The deadlock between the BJP and Shiv Sena continues over seat sharing for the upcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra. The Bharatiya Janata Party has reportedly suggested a new seat-sharing formula to Uddhav Thackeray’s party which aims at playing big this time. BJP demanded for 125-130 seats out of 288.
A Central Election Committee meeting was held to take a decision on the issue. The meeting was attended by senior leaders like Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Vinod Tawde, OP Mathur and Maharashtra BJP President Devendra Phadnavis.
The Shiv Sena has called its district-level leaders meeting at its head quarters in Mumbai to take a call on the proposal. Sena will come to a conclusion by Sunday.
Shiv Sena had earlier offered 119 seats to BJP to contest in the state but the Centre’s ruling party rejected the proposal.
