The BJP-Shiv Sena combine was expected to form the government, having crossed the majority mark required for government formation. But a bitter argument between the saffron allies over Sena’s 50-50 formula demand led a political impasse in the state, finally resulting in the imposition of President’s Rule in Maharashtra on Tuesday. Governor BS Koshiyari recommended President’s Rule in the state after both Shiv Sena and NCP failed to show the letter of support required to form the government. The state will under President’s Rule for six months, giving sufficient time to the key actors in Maharashtra power play to redraw strategies.
