Maharashtra: After BJP's Core Committee meetings, Fadnavis reaches Raj Bhawan to meet Governor

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov 10 (ANI): After the second Core Committee meeting of BJP was over on Sunday, acting Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis reached the Raj Bhawan to meet Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.

The Governor on Saturday had asked Fadnavis to "indicate the willingness and ability of his party to form the government in Maharashtra".

The party's core committee met twice today to discuss the Governor's invitation to the BJP to form the government in the state.

The term of the assembly ended yesterday. The BJP remerged as the single-largest party in the assembly polls winning 105 seats while the Shiv Sena won 56 seats.

The Shiv Sena has insisted that the two parties had a '50-50' power-shaing agreement before the elections.

However, Fadnavis has said the Shiv Sena was not promised the chief minister's post for two-and-a-half years when the alliance was sealed before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. (ANI)
