Absurd it seems as if ss was sure that it will get more seats or double whereas success rate of ss was lower than last time and it got fewer seats and that of BJP was success rate is 70%.


Shiva sena workers are mostly Hindus.they will switch to BJP if SS align with NCP and congress who are appeasing minorities


udhav you are not a liar you are stupid. with 56 mla you want to be a CM. just ask people how good you have been at running mumbai muncipality. after this episode bjp should fight mcgm elections independantly and show how its run and what can be done with vision for future of state instead of future for "SON"


time to fully clean out nonsense. no exceptions

Ridiculous to demand cm post for a party with 56 seats ! This is again a reflection of dynasty politics played by congress ncp and now add SS .... finally all dynasties will come together as their survival is at stake. Bjp should have fought all assembly seats and today they would have formed a majority Govt on own . Anyways a bad lesson . We will now have the corruption back in Maharashtra


shiv sainik to bahut honge shiv sena me phir kyon keval aditya thakre hi kyon


Shiv sainik ko chief minister nahi balki apne bete ko chief minister banana chahata he Aaj ka Dhratrastra

hhh...hhh... Shameless SoS party. Agreement for CM post...? Under which property registry, it is recorded and registered.The reason is very clear. Like NPC, the SOS also have part in pmc loot of Rs.4,500 Crores. hhh.... Let ED and CBI enter in to the picture . Then every thing will be clear. The scamsters togother wants to form a govt under SOS CM .


A PARTY which has majority in number only can make chief minister of its party leaderHow can Siva sena expect chief minister ship for its party when it has only 1/6 of the assembly seats. Otherwise it has to form government like in karnataka with support from ncp and congress which ultimately has ditched jdu. Same is the gate of Siva sena also. Arrogant behaviour like this will make the party meet like in karnataka.


SS has played his cards very badly. First, words and statements used in public life for partner were not appreciated by public at large and there strategy to play the game was utterly childish.


Why SS is not showing proof if there is agreement. they should come out with concrete proof. every one has the right to dig his own pit to fall.Andhra people made CNN to fall in his pit.


BJP made the biggest mistake of forming an alliance with Shivsena. They have done better off without forming alliance with Shivsena.In this and past elections Shivsena has immensely benifeted from this alliance.Uddhav Thackeray has become Dritrashtra.He will be finished off.


In all this drama, What may be the case, why Amit Shah is keeping mum. Why he is not talking to Sena Chief and solve deadlock by discussion. We as tax payers will have to pay for it if re election is imposed on MHA

I dont think Shiv Sena sesaves CM post in the current political situation in India. Shiv Sena could not win even 50% of seats they have contested. In the interest of the people of Maharanstra, they to support BJP to form the governemnt without any conditions. Else, we all knew the consequences. All the Sena MLAs will jump the boat.


OK. Fine BUT mr. Uddhav , India want to know who is capable in your party I.e. your son or broker / Dalal Sanjay Rout. People of Mumbai experienced your expertise in running BMC very closely.

For a moment, even if public accepts your false claim that CM''s post was agreed in the presence of Shri Amit Shah, was any time 30 months period for that was raised, discussed and agreed? Don''t be smart, Udhav! Believe in GOD and speak the truth.
