Shiv Sena's lone Union minister Arvind Sawant took to Twitter and claimed that he would step down from the NDA government
Mumbai: With a massive tussle between the BJP and Shiv Sena, the NCP is all set to take advantage of the situation in Maharashtra. It can be seen that Shiv Sena has agreed to NCP's demand for walking out of the NDA alliance at the Centre.
Taking to Twitter, Sena's lone Union minister Arvind Sawant from the Shiv Sena party announced that he would be resigning from the post.
"BJP has taken a lot of strides in Maharashtra in the pursuit of falsehood. Prior to the elections, both agreed to the 50:50 formula. Now, denying this formula is a formidable threat to the Shiv Sena," Sawant said on Twitter.
"Shiv Sena's side is the truth. Why stay in Delhi government in such a false environment? And that is why I am resigning as the Union minister," he added.
Earlier, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari asked the leader of the second-largest party elected, the Shiv Sena "to indicate the willingness and ability" to form the government.
The political crisis in Maharashtra only deepened further ever since the Legislative Assembly elections were held on October 21 and the results were declared on October 24. It's 15 days now, and no single party or alliance of parties has come forward to form the government.
