Uddhavji must get written assurance: Shiv Sena MLA on 50-50 formula for CM's post
The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance won an absolute majority in the Maharashtra assembly polls with the former emerging as the single largest party in the state with 105 seats.
Mumbai Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik on Saturday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) should give a written assurance that both alliance parties will have a chance to run the government according to the 50-50 formula "promised" by Union Home Minister Amit Shah during the Lok Sabha elections.
"In our meeting, it was decided like Amit Shah had promised 50-50 formula before Lok Sabha polls. So, both allies should get a chance to run the government for 2.5-2.5 years and Shiv Sena should also have the chief minister's post. Uddhav ji should get this assurance in writing from BJP," Sarnaik, Shiv Sena MLA from Thane told reporters.
The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance won an absolute majority in the Maharashtra assembly polls with the former emerging as the single largest party in the state with 105 seats. Shiv Sena, on the other hand, bagged 56 seats in the elections.
Both parties also contested 2019 Lok Sabha elections and bagged 42 out of 48 seats in Maharashtra.
