Maharashtra government would fall in 2-3 months, says Union minister

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will form a government in Maharashtra in next 2-3 months, for which “we have made preparation,” said Union minister Raosaheb Danve  on Monday.

Dave was addressing a meeting of BJP workers in Parbhani as part of campaign for the next month’s legislative council election to Aurangabad Graduate constituency. He is minister of state for ministry of consumer affairs.

Shirish Boralkar is the BJP’s candidate for the forthcoming MLC poll.

“BJP workers should not think that our government will not come into existence in Maharashtra. We will form a government in the next two-three months. We have worked out the mathematics. We are waiting for the ongoing elections to (the Legislative Council) to get over,” the Jalna MP said.

As per a report, Danve’s statement came hours after Fadnavis told reporters in Aurangabad that if the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government falls, the oath ceremony won’t be held at dawn.

“If the present government in the state collapses, the oath ceremony will not take place at dawn. But such incidents need not be remembered,” the former chief minister said.

Fadnavis had earlier said on many occasions that the MVA government would fall on its own due to “internal differences” among its three constituents.

The BJP had won 105 seats in the Maharashtra assembly last year, the maximum amongst all parties. Shiv Sena had bagged 56 and NCP 54 while Congress managed 44 seats.
