If seats are divided for Maharashtra assembly elections, BJP will get the maximum number of seats: Fadnavis

Nagpur: Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said all three parties in the Mahayuti alliance will decide together on seat-sharing for the assembly elections, though the BJP, being the largest party, will definitely get the maximum number of seats. Apart from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Mahayuti government in Maharashtra comprises the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) led by Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar. “Leaders of the three parties in the Mahayuti will meet to decide a proper seat-sharing formula for the assembly elections and seats will be allotted accordingly,” Fadnavis told reporters.

Obviously, being the largest party, BJP will get the maximum number of seats. However, our allies will be given due respect in the seat sharing.” He was responding to a question on the remarks of NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal. Bhujbal had said that his party will get a chance to contest at least 80 to 90 seats out of the total 288 seats. Assembly elections are due in Maharashtra later this year. In the 2019 assembly elections, the BJP contested 122 seats and won 105, while its then ally Shiv Sena (undivided) contested 63 seats and won 56.

The Nationalist Congress Party (United), which was part of the opposition United Progressive Alliance (UPA), had won 41 seats. Fadnavis rejected Shiv Sena (Uttar Pradesh) leader Sanjay Raut’s claim that he (Fadnavis), Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah had tried to defeat Nitin Gadkari in the Lok Sabha elections. The BJP leader said, I do not want to comment on a person who writes articles in newspapers after smoking marijuana.
