I hate you, I hate you not: Uddhav Thackeray hints Sena still ‘open’ to the BJP option

Responding to a question whether the party's tie-up with BJP is completely over, Thackeray had said, "Why are you in such a hurry? It’s politics. President has given us six months’ time."

After facing a huge embarrassment for failure to garner enough number to form a government, the defeated Shiv Sena is now hoping for a reconciliation with its pre-poll alliance partner BJP.

According to the reports, Shiv Sena after being dumped by both Sharad Pawar led NCP and Congress on Tuesday, seems to have a learnt the lesson the hard way and has now decided to keep its door open for BJP over a possible government formation in the state.

As per reports, the Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamna’ has today blamed the BJP for the political mess, claiming that the situation has been avoided had they ‘kept their promise’.

This is one of the many flip-flops displayed by the Sena in the recent days exposing its utter desperation to form a government and grab the CM’s post, despite winning just 58 seats, as opposed to the BJP’s 105 seats.

As Maharashtra governor refused to give further time to Shiv Sena to form the government, the party had approached the Supreme Court against Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari’s decision. It was reported that Sena is going to rope in senior lawyer and Congress leader Kapil Sibal to present its case in court.

Following this development, party chief Uddhav Thackeray addressed a press conference on Tuesday in which he stopped short of saying that the alliance with the BJP was over. Responding to a question whether the party’s tie-up with BJP is completely over, Thackeray had said, “Why are you in such a hurry? It’s politics. President has given us six months’ time.”

Putting the blame on the BJP, Thackeray had said it was BJP who refused to form the government with Shiv Sena by not keeping the promise that it had made before the Lok Sabha polls. “If the option has been exhausted, it would have been done by them and not me. If the alliance has ended, it is BJP that ended it,” Thackeray said.

Uddhav Thackeray further claimed that BJP was in a situation before the Lok Sabha polls, that it could not win more than 200-220 seats in Parliament. “It was I who went along with BJP in those dark times. So the option of going with BJP again may have been ended by them,” he said.

It is notable here that the Sena’s insistence on the CM post had caused the failure of the pre-poll alliance with the BJP. The BJP had stood on its ground that no 50-50 formula was agreed upon the parties and only Devendra Fadnavis will be the CM.

This comes a day after Shiv Sena had pulled out its MP Aravind Sawant from the NDA government hoping that they would form a government with support from the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress. Soon, the Shiv Sena had rushed to the Governor to inform that it is willing to form the government.

However, both NCP and Congress backtracked regarding their support to Shiv Sena and clarified that they have not sent any letter of support for Shiv Sena. A press release issued by the Congress mentioned that the party was talking to Sharad Pawar, without mentioning anything about Shiv Sena.
