Days after Mr. Uddhav Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray, predicted that Maharashtra would hold midterm Assembly elections, Mr. Sanjay Raut, the party's MP, backed up the president's claim, saying that the state of politics in Maharashtra at the moment is so unstable that the planning for the midterm elections has already started in Delhi. It is accurate what Uddhav Thackeray says. Delhi has begun making preparations for the midterm elections since Maharashtra politics have grown so unpredictable. Additionally, plans are being made to engineer a larger separation. He observed that there is always one Shinde defector in every group (referring to Eknath Shinde, who organised a coup with the support of 10 independents and 39 Shiv Sena MLAs).
However, Chandrashekhar Bawankule, the head of the BJP in the state, has ruled out the notion of a midterm election. He asserted that the Shiv Sena UBT made such claims in order to unite its supporters. He continued by saying that the BJP-Shinde camp's support in the state would rise from 164 to 184. He said, "They (the Shiv Sena UBT) in opposition, they should perform their duty." Everyone has a right to speak in a democracy, according to Mr. Ajit Pawar, the leader of the opposition in the state assembly. But he refrained from commenting on the state's upcoming midterm elections.
In the meantime, Mr. Raut visited Mr. Amol Kirtikar today. Mr. Amol Kirtikar is the son of Mr. Gajanan Kirtikar, who joined the Eknath Shinde-led Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena two days ago. He said that Mr. Amol Kirtikar, a close friend and confidante of party founder Mr. Aaditya Thackeray, had not defected. In June of this year, the Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi administration in Maharashtra fell due to a mutiny headed by Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who went on to secure the backing of the BJP and become the state's chief minister. There is a mood of animosity, and politicians have advanced to the point where they don't want their adversaries to exist at all. According to Raut, the political climate in Maharashtra has degenerated to the point that people are actively seeking to harm one another.
