The two factions of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLAs do not seem to have a complete solution. Advocate of NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress alliance Abhishek Manu Singhvi has informed the Supreme Court on Sunday that Sharad Pawar has the signature of support of 41 MLAs of his party. The court has not been given any information about the 13 remaining MLAs out of the 54 victorious NCP in the election. Whereas after the NCP meeting held in Mumbai on Saturday evening, Sharad Pawar claimed to return all the MLAs except Ajit Pawar and one-two. On the other hand, Ajit Pawar and BJP are also claiming the support of the same NCP MLAs. Apart from these claims, not clearing the 13 NCP MLAs can prove dangerous for the NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress alliance. If we look at the figures, the NCP’s 13 rebels are found along with 105 BJP MLAs and 29 MLAs of independents and smaller parties, then the count reaches 147. Whereas 145 MLAs are needed to form the government in Maharashtra. That is, Ajit Pawar can live in the game of forming a government with BJP even with only 13 MLAs. On the other hand, Sharad Pawar’s equation can get worse despite the support of 41 MLAs.
The court has not been given any information about the 13 remaining MLAs out of the 54 victorious NCP in the election.
Only the leader of Ajit Legislative Party will survive the government What is the current status of NCP leader Ajit Pawar? Is he still legally the leader of the NCP Legislature Party? This is an important question around which the strategy of BJP and NCP-Congress-Shiv Sena is revolving. If the Supreme Court did not clarify the situation on this, then the role of the speaker will become important in the whole matter. Then the question of government formation in the state will revolve around the Supreme Court for a long time. In fact, after the alleged rebellion of Ajit Pawar, NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Saturday chose the new MLA in place of Ajit, the leader of the legislative party. Ajit Pawar, however, submitted to the Governor the letter of support of the party MLAs when he himself was the leader of the legislature party. In such a situation, the question is whether the future speaker will consider Ajit Pawar as the leader of the legislative party on the basis of the situation before the oath or the selection of a new leader for this post by the NCP on Saturday. This question is important because if Ajit Pawar is considered the leader of the legislative party, then he will have the right to issue whip during the power test.
In such a case, Ajit, in whose favor he will issue instructions to the MLAs, if the NCP MLAs do not accept it, it would be considered a violation of the whip. Apparently in such a situation, political bets will be in the hands of Ajit, who is the BJP’s favorite. However, the NCP says that since the party has informed the Governor of the Legislature Party from afresh, it would be unconstitutional to consider Ajit as the leader of the Legislature Party. Whereas the BJP camp says that since Ajit was the leader of the legislature party during the formation of the government, it would be unconstitutional to accept the sudden change in it. Rebel leaders take the reins of Operation Kamal The party has handed over the reins of Operation Kamal Yojana to four leaders for the date of November 30, given by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to the BJP to prove majority in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. Two of these leaders have come to the party from Congress and two from NCP. In the current political drama, the BJP has made this plan to cut the Congress-NCP. According to sources, the BJP has started preparations to raise the required figure of 145 in the 288 house. In this, under the Operation Lotus, responsibility has been given to Narayan Rane, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Babanrao Pachpute and Ganesh Naik. Rane-Patil has come to BJP from Congress and Pachpute-Naik has been in NCP earlier. Sources reveal that the four leaders can make a dent in the Congress-NCP strongholds. These parties have kept their leaders in different hotels. Although all parties deny the demolition of MLAs, the political reality is different. The Shiv Sena with 56 MLAs has also been claiming that when the opportunity comes, we will show support from 165 to 170 in the House.
