Nagpur, Nov 6 : Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis rushed to Nagpur and drove straight to the RSS headquarters at Reshimbag, where he held a closed door meeting with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
They reportedly discussed the hurdles in the formation of the government in the State due to Shiv Sena’s insistence on having the post of Chief Minister.
During the meeting on Tuesday night, they discussed the political situation of the state and security arrangements, in view of the expected decision of the Supreme Court on Ayodhya case.
There was no official briefing about the meeting, but sources claimed that in the discussion, which lasted for about one-and-a-half hour, the issue of formation of the state government came up.
Mr Fadnavis declined to reveal what transpired between the two during the meeting.
According to sources, the role of Shiv Sena creating hurdles in government formation and the future problems were discussed.
Along with this, the situation in view of the coming Supreme Court verdict on the Ram Temple issue in Ayodhya was also discussed, said sources.
Sources further claimed the Chief Minister apprised Dr Bhagwat about the measures being taken to maintain law and order in the state.
Speculations are rife that after this meeting , the obstacles in the way of government formation will be removed.
BJP did not get the required number of seats in the Assembly elections. Hence, Shiv Sena was adamant on its demand of 50:50 seat sharing in the government and rotation of the post of Chief Minister for two-and-a-half years. (UNI)
