As the political drama over formation of the next state government in Maharashtra continues, State Secretary of NCP Youth Ashish Mete posted a very controversial tweet regarding the matter attacking PM Modi, but later deleted it. In the tweet, Mete compared Narendra Modi with Ajmal Kasab, the lone Pakistani terrorist caught alive after the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Ashish Mete posted the tweet in Marathi, translation of which would be, ‘even though Kasab burnt down the CST station, he had to cry because Tukaram Ombale fought with him. Just like that even after winning India, Modi is crying but Sharad Pawar with 54 seats is overpowering him’. In the shocking tweet, the NCP leader was comparing the situation of PM Narendra Modi with terrorist Ajmal Kasab who was hanged in 2012.

But later he deleted the tweet, and posted another tweet with the same message but dropping the Kasab reference. The new Tweet in Marathi says, ‘even after winning entire India, Modi is crying, because although he won 105 seats, Sharad Pawar is overpowering him with 54 seats.

Mete’s claim that Pawar is winning despite winning around half the number of seats won by BJP is contrary to the official position of NCP. The party has been maintaining that it has not won the mandate in Maharashtra, and the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance should form the government. Yesterday Sharad Pawar had reiterated the party position saying that the NCP-Congress alliance will not make any attempts to form a government in Maharashtra. “I don’t have anything to say yet. BJP and Shiv Sena have got the mandate of people, so they should form the government as soon as possible. Our mandate is to play the role of Opposition,” Sharad Pawar had said.

Although the results for Maharashtra assembly elections were announced on 24th October, no government has been formed yet as the winning NDA alliance partners BJP and Shiv Sena are locked in a stalemate over the power-sharing formula. In the elections, BJP has emerged as the single largest party with 105 seats, its partner Shiv Sena won 56 seats, while NCP and Congress won 54 and 44 seats respectively. But Shiv Sena is insisting on a 50:50 power-sharing formula and CMs from both the parties for 2.5 years each, which BJP is not agreeing to. Therefore, it is Shiv Sena which is creating a hurdle for Devendra Fadnavis in becoming the Maharashtra CM again, not NCP.
