Mumbai: Amidst the new political stir in Rajasthan including Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, a recent statement by Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole has heated up the politics there. Nana Patole said on Monday that Congress will fight alone in the assembly elections to be held in Maharashtra. If the high command decides, I am ready to be the chief ministerial face. Patole’s statement is now being interpreted differently by all political parties, including the coalition.
This statement of Maharashtra Congress state president Nana Patole has come at a time when the Congress party is currently a partner with Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party in the government of Maharashtra. In the middle of the government’s tenure, the Congress has announced the strategy for the next assembly elections.
Nana Patole said that the Uddhav Thackeray government of the state has full support of the Congress for five years. For five years there is no problem for this government from our side. He said that Congress will contest the next assembly elections in the state alone and if the high command wants, he can be the face of the CM.
Here, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said on Sunday that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) is an alliance of three parties in the Maharashtra government, but no agreement has been reached on the chief minister’s post. The post of Chief Minister will remain with Shiv Sena for the whole five years. The Shiv Sena, a long-time ally of the BJP, had an altercation with it over the chief minister’s post. After this Shiv Sena formed the government with the help of Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray became the chief minister in this government.
Let us tell you that recently, the special meaning of this statement of Raut, who came after Thackeray’s long meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is being extracted.
