Meanings of PM Modi-Sharad Pawar meeting
Recently the Union Cabinet has expanded, in which former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was being considered as the main contender. But Fadnavis did not become a part of the Union Cabinet. It is clear that political equations in Maharashtra are sometimes being formed and sometimes deteriorating. Shiv Sena has clearly said that it is still waiting by standing where the BJP left it. Meaning whenever BJP-Shiv Sena government is formed in the state, it will be the same 50-50 formula. Means Devendra Fadnavis cannot become Chief Minister in alliance with Shiv Sena.
