BJP core committee meeting underway on Maharashtra govt formation
A meeting of the BJP core committee is underway at Sagar Bungalow, the residence of former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis in Mumbai to further deliberate on the strategy for the course of action following Uddhav Thackeray's resignation as the Chief Minister on Wednesday.
Party's top leaders including in-charge CT Ravi, Chandrakant Patil, Girish Mahajan, Praveen Darekar and others are present in the meeting. Independent MLA Ravi Rana also reached his residence.
On the other hand, Eknath Shinde faction also held a meeting today in Goa today, to decide on their future course of action.
Shinde cleared the air floating around the distribution of ministerial posts with the BJP, and said that there has been discussion with the latter so far.
He, however, added that the talks on the same will happen soon.
Meanwhile, the stage is set for the return of a BJP-led government in the state with the party, which is the single-largest party in the Maharashtra Assembly with 106 MLAs, likely to stake claim to form the government.
