Mumbai, Oct 27: Shiv Sena agreed to be with the BJP, its estranged ally, extending its support to form the government in Maharashtra, following the party hosted by prime minister Narendra Modi in Mumbai. Even the party will support its ally on the decision of chief minister of the state.
The sudden change of the party comes after Modi intervened the matter and succeeded in reuniting two old friends to provide a stable coalition government in Maharashtra.
Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece 'Saamna' has written that whether it was Nitin Gadkari or Devendra Fadnavis, the party would support the leader who takes Maharashtra forward.
The article also said that the Shiv Sena wants the state to have "Shiv Rajya" and inspirational leadership.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra legislative party of BJP is scheduled to meet soon to formally elect the next CM of the state. The central leadership like Rajnath Singh and JP Nadda are likely to attend the meeting. The swearing-in ceremony may take place on Oct 30 at Wankhede stadium.
The name of Fadnavis has been doing the rounds in media as the frontrunner for the chief minister's post. However, it will be clear very soon.
As per reports, even though no talks took place between two parties over the formation of government in Maharashtra at the tea party hosted by Modi for the NDA MPs yesterday, still its impact was best noticed in Saamna with the green signal of extending its support to the BJP for Maharashtra.
