In order to retain it’s power in centre, BJP is trying every possible way to lure Sena. On January 23, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis handed over 2.5 acres of land at the prime location with a fund of 100 crores for Mumbai’s iconic Shivaji Park. Fadnavis has also given a green signal to Aditya Thackeray, Shiv Sena Youth wing chief, to revive Mumbai’s nightlife. Also, Fadnavis had stayed the land acquisition for a controversial chemical refinery proposed in Ratnagiri district in view of Sena’s objection earlier. These steps have shown no effects on Shiv Sena, as Uddhav Thackeray is constantly demanding for 50 per cent share of the Chief Minister’s term in office. The old partners have won 41 seats out of 48 seats in 2014 elections out of which 18 seats was bagged by Sena and 23 by BJP. If the allies contest election separately then speculations state that Sena may be at the losing side considering the earlier election results. Though, this will also affect BJP to some extent. Since Maharashtra is second important state in terms of seats, BJP will not let any stone unturned to make it’s win confirmed.

In an event in Nashik, Maharashtra water resource minister, Girish Mahajan, said that if the alliance breaks with Shiv Sena, Sena will hardly win four seats in the coming election. Shiv Sena MP’s have told Thackeray that they will face a tough time if they contest election separately.

The final decision, however, lie with Sena chief who will take the final call which will decide the fate of Maharashtra and BJP in the upcoming election.
