Maha breakthrough in sight, BJP leader says ‘good news’ soon

MUMBAI: A BJP minister in Maharashtra on Tuesday hinted at a possible breakthrough in the ongoing stand-off with the Shiv Sena over formation of a Government, saying “good news” can come at any moment.

Sena MP Sanjay Raut, however, said his party was firm on a written assurance from the senior alliance partner over power sharing, including rotating CM’s post for 2.5 years.

There has been no headway in Government formation after results of the October 21 Assembly polls were declared on October 24.

“A good news regarding Government formation can come at any moment,” Maharashtra Finance Minister and senior BJP

leader Sudhir Mungantiwar told reporters after a meeting of State BJP core team at Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ official residence Varsha in south Mumbai. (AGENCIES)
