A Mumbai-based astrologer has predicted that the Uddhav Thackeray-led government may not last beyond April, thereby collapsing in six months of formation. As reported by Mid-Day, astrologer Sushil Chaturvedi has predicted infighting in the coalition government to escalate between 7th February to 28th April which will eventually snowball and bring down the government.
As per Chaturvedi, the timing of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s swearing in ceremony, at 6:40 PM on Thursday, 28th November, in inauspicious as it falls between Rahu and Ketu. The planetary position is not favouring Thackeray at that time, he says. He says since the planets fall between Rahu and Ketu, it is a ‘very bad time’ and indicates destruction in coalition government.
Predicting infighting within the coalition, Chaturvedi said that the parties will lose most of the seats they have won for having done what they have to form the government. Meanwhile, a video clip of a 1980 Kamal Haasan movie Varumaiyan Niram Sivappu has gone viral on social media which ‘predicts’ the current political crisis in Maharashtra quite accurately.

In the clip, in what seems like an interview scene, the interviewer is asking Haasan who is the chief minister of Maharashtra. Haasan questions back, ‘today, yesterday or the day before? Because they change every day you see.”
The politics in Maharashtra has been embroiled in drama after the BJP emerged as single-largest party but had a fallout with its pre-poll alliance partner Shiv Sena after they did not agree to their demands and conditions. The Shiv Sena then joined hands with NCP and Congress and last Friday had announced Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray as CM candidate for the alliance. However, in a surprise move, on 23rd November, Saturday, Devendra Fadnavis took oath as CM with support of NCP’s Ajit Pawar, who too took oath as deputy chief minister on the same day.
The Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress filed a joint petition in the Supreme Court challenging the government formation. On Tuesday, within few hours of the apex court ordering a floor test, Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar resigned from their posts. Following that, Uddhav Thackeray was again declared the chief ministerial candidate for the ‘Maha Vikas Aghadi’ coalition. Thackeray will swear in as the chief minister later today in Mumbai.
