BJP, Sena impasse continues in Maharashtra, Prakash Ambedkar to seek President’s rule

MUMBAI: As the impasse between BJP and Shiv Sena over government formation in Maharashtra goes on, Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) chief Prakash Ambedkar on Thursday said he will meet Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to discuss the current political scenario in the state and request him to impose Governor’s Rule.

Speaking to ANI, Ambedkar felt that the current scenario is creating a situation of violation of constitutional provisions. With the BJP and Shiv Sena embroiled in a tussle over power-sharing, time is running out and there are no signs of government formation as of now.

The VBA did not win any seat in the state assembly elections last month but did get a fair share of votes in their kitty. The VBA had contested the Lok Sabha elections in alliance with the AIMIM but had fought the assembly polls alone due to some differences.

Although VBA failed to open its account, the party got nearly 4.6 per cent vote share in the state.

Amid the impasse over government formation, Ambedkar said that Congress should capitalise in the current situation and help Shiv Sena so that BJP can be kept out of power.
