In the recent elections, the BJP and the Shiv Sena contested together. The BJP won 105 seats and the Shiv Sena won 53 seats. However, Shiv Sena wanted a 50:50 seat-sharing formula and Aditya Thackeray wanted to be the CM for two and a half years.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar said he was not ready to join hands with the Shiv Sena. Pawar said the Shiv Sena would soon form a government along with the BJP. Sharad Pawar made it clear that they will sit in the opposition. Now there is only one way before the Shiv Sena, to join the BJP or go to the polls again.
