The BJP and Shiv Sena alliance broke after the Maharashtra elections results were declared where BJP emerged as single largest party with 105 seats and Shiv Sena came second with 56 seats. Following the results, Shiv Sena said that they will not settle for less than the post of a chief minister. Shiv Sena even talked about 50-50 formula where BJP and Shiv Sena could have the post of the chief minister for 2.5 years each. However, the BJP refused. Since then, the government formation in the state has been in a deadlock. Shiv Sena broke alliance with BJP and is now contemplating forming a government with NCP and Congress alliance.
