Ajit Pawar's Entry Sparks Tension within Maharashtra's Political Landscape
In recent developments within Maharashtra's political sphere, the entry of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar into the coalition government has sparked tension and uneasiness within the Shinde group, particularly among MLAs who had left Shiv Sena after criticizing Ajit Pawar and the NCP. The MLAs find themselves in a conflicting position, now having to adhere to the orders of the same Ajit Pawar they once opposed.
The unease stems from the perceived division of power and the challenge it poses to the aspirations of leaders vying for ministerial positions within the Shinde group. The sudden shift in alliances and power dynamics has created a headache for these leaders, as they grapple with the consequences of sharing the proverbial bread of power.
The entry of Ajit Pawar into the alliance has not only
caused unrest within the Shinde group but also raised questions about the ideological stance of the late Balasaheb Thackeray, who would have likely never formed an alliance with the NCP. This contradiction now poses a challenge for the MLAs as they consider how to address their constituents and justify their changed positions.
Furthermore, Ajit Pawar's inclusion in the alliance has the potential to evoke sympathy for Shiv Sena and its leader, Uddhav Thackeray, both from the voters and Shiv Sainiks. This development has prompted Chief Minister Eknath Shinde to call for an urgent meeting of MLAs and MPs to address their concerns and discuss the current political situation.
In light of the dissatisfaction among Shinde faction MLAs, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has canceled all his programs for the day and scheduled the meeting at

Bungalow at 7 pm. The meeting aims to address the objections raised regarding the financial account and the impact of Ajit Pawar's presence in the alliance. MLAs are expected to express their concerns about the problems faced in their constituencies due to the alliance and urge Shinde not to allocate the financial account to Ajit Pawar to avoid tarnishing their image among Shiv Sainiks.
Another key topic of discussion in the meeting will revolve around the upcoming cabinet expansion. With 18 MLAs set to be sworn in as ministers, the Shinde group is eager to determine how many ministerial posts they will secure and which positions will be allocated to their members. These deliberations will shape the power dynamics within the government.
The Shinde group emphasizes the importance of adhering to the previously agreed-upon
power-sharing formula, as it ensures equitable distribution among coalition partners. The group asserts that if Ajit Pawar is to be granted a share of power, it should come from the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) quota rather than their own. This stance will likely be discussed during the meeting as the MLAs voice their concerns and seek a resolution.
In conclusion, Ajit Pawar's entry into the Maharashtra coalition government has led to tension and uneasiness within the Shinde group, prompting an urgent meeting of MLAs and MPs. The meeting aims to address concerns related to the financial account, constituency problems, upcoming cabinet expansion, and adherence to the power-sharing formula. The discussions within the meeting will play a crucial role in shaping the future dynamics of the coalition government and the overall political landscape in Maharashtra.
