Union minister Narayan Rane reportedly said, “Change will be seen in Maharashtra very soon. The change will be seen by March. To form a government or break a government, some things have to be kept secret.”
Narayan Rane, Union Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, said on Thursday that a ‘change’ will be seen in Maharashtra very soon.
While on a two-day visit to Rajasthan, he reportedly stated, “Change will be seen in Maharashtra very soon. The change will be seen by March. To form a government or break a government, some things have to be kept secret.”
He was further quoted by ANI news agency as saying, “Uddhav Thackeray is unwell, so our party president Chandrakant Patil has told us not to talk about him now. But the three-party Maha Vikas Aghadi government will not be surviving for long in Maharashtra.”
Two weeks ago, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had undergone a successful cervical spine surgery at HN Reliance Hospital in Mumbai.
MVA vs BJP
The ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra is led by the Shiv Sena, Congress and Nationalist Congress Party.
Earlier, the BJP and Shiv Sena were allies and governed the state from 2014 to 2019. When they were re-elected in 2019, differences over who would get the chief ministerial chair and other such issues led to a split between the two parties. The Shiv Sena then joined hands with NCP and Congress.
Meanwhile, the BJP is the single largest opposition party in Maharashtra with Devendra Fadnavis as the Leader of Opposition.
