Maharashtra: The lessons for the BJP to learn


New Delhi, Nov 28: After much drama in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress will form the government with Uddhav Thackeray at the helm of affairs.

One would say that the BJP would have been better off had it not staked a claim to form the government. The early morning swearing-in by Devendra Fadnavis turned out to be a misadventure, as he was unable to muster up the numbers. There are some lessons for the BJP to learn from this incident.

The alliance according to me has become stronger in spite of internal contradictions. The second term for any government is always a challenge and now the question is whether this is the start of an anti-BJP coalition.
