Mocking the ongoing tussle between the allies BJP and Shiv Sena to form the government in Maharashtra, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi asked whether ’50-50′ is a new biscuit in the market.
The government has still not formed in Maharashtra due to the tussle in between BJP and Shiv Sena over power sharing. Shiv Sena has asked for a 50-50 formula and post of Chief Minister for 2.5 years on which BJP is not agreeing.
Owaisi, whose party AIMIM has won two seats in the state, made it clear that AIMIM is not going to support neither BJP nor Shiv Sena and said, “What is this 50-50, is there a new biscuit (in the market)? How much 50-50 will you do? Do something for the people of Maharashtra. They (BJP and Shiv Sena) are not bothered about the destruction that rain has caused in Satara. Farmers are worried but all they talk about is 50-50.”
“AIMIM will neither support BJP nor Shiv Sena to form government in the state,” said Owaisi.
“I don’t know whether Fadnavis or some else is becoming the Chief Minister. Musical chair is going on. It seems like Shiv Sena does not know what to do. It looks like Uddhav Thackeray is afraid of Prime Minister Modi,” he added.
In the 288-members assembly, BJP had bagged 105 seats while its ally got 56 seats. The NCP and Congress who fought in opposition in the state bagged 54 seats and 44 seats respectively.
There is no clear picture on the government formation in the state till now as the BJP and Shiv Sena are locked in a tussle over power sharing. It is being speculated that President’s rule will be imposed in the state if there is no government formation till November 7.
