As soon as trends and results came out in the Maharashtra elections, it became clear that the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance government would be formed once again in the state.Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has said that there will be talks with BJP for the post of Chief Minister. After this, Sanjay Raut will meet Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray regarding the election results.
In the trend of 288 assembly seats in Maharashtra, BJP and its ally Shiv Sena are seen again forming government in the state. In the trends so far, BJP is leading in 103 and Shiv Sena in 61 seats. Shiv Sena may bring more seats from 2014 this year.
In the Maharashtra Assembly elections, Shiv Sena has been consistently saying that this time the CM will belong to Shiv Sena. Therefore, this time for the first time Shiv Sena has fielded Aditya Thackeray candidate from Thackeray family.
In the initial trends this time, it seemed that the BJP would touch the majority mark on its own. But as the vote count is advancing, the BJP is finding it difficult to come to power on its own. It will have to seek the support of Shiv Sena.
