Maharashtra Govt Formation updates: Sena calls governor's decision 'scripted act'
Mumbai, Nov 14: BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday said Shiv Sena's demands, including sharing the chief minister's post, were "unacceptable" to his party and rejected the opposition's criticism of President's rule in Maharashtra as "outright politics" to gain public sympathy.
The President's Rule has been implemented for six months but can be withdrawn anytime before it.
In the October 21 polls, the BJP won 105 seats while ally Sena won 56 seats. The majority mark in the 288-member state Assembly is 145. BJP and Shiv Sena have been bickering over a 50:50 division of power, including the chief ministers post, resulting in a stalemate over government formation.
