Maha games: Pawar playing hot and cold bodes ill for BJP and NCP

The uncanny Sharad Pawar has not helped the BJP make up its mind, also making one wonder if the seasoned politician has lost his touch. #BJP #Devendra Fadnavis #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #NCP #PoliticalPlay #Politics #Sharad Pawar #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

BJP bungles: Devendra Fadnavis’ trust vote win in Maha is an empty victory

Was BJP queasy about NCP's support for survival, either by the latter abstaining or voting in its favour. Is it that the BJP continues to suspect the NCP's honesty, that it may suddenly get up and vote against it? BJP had been consistently saying that NCP's was a unilateral offer, and it had neither sought or accepted it. But today, by doing neither, it would have stood to gain #BJP #Chief Minister of Maharashtra #Congress #Devendra Fadnavis #Eknath Shinde #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2014 #MNS #NCP #RajThackeray #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Shiv Sena’s crisis in Maharashtra: Indecision of Uddhav is killing the party

If this 'offer' were to be accepted, Shiv Sena will have to forego its other demands, especially the post of deputy CM. #Anand Geete #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Politics #PoliticsDecoder #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Maharashtra drama not yet over: NCP to vote for BJP in return for 2 ministries?

Dissing Sena, Rule by CMO: BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis shaping up to be a mini-Modi

The message of soon to be Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis's cabinet is likely to be clear: “It’s us, none else”. #BJP #CMO #Devendra Fadnavis #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Narendra Modi #NCP #PMO #Shiv Sena

Accept minor role or sit in opposition: Sorry Shiv Sena, these are your only choices

The Sena should, on that account, moderate its expectations and do just two things: it either accepts a very nominal role in a post-coalition government, or stay put in the opposition #BJP #Congress #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #NCP #Politics #Sharad Pawar #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Don’t bow down to BJP: Shiv Sena will have more merit as oppn in Maharashtra

Shiv Sena should opt for opposition role, and when both Congress and NCP are down and out, fill opposition space and hope to become a government-in-waiting. #BJP #Congress #InMyOpinion #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Maharashtra Results #NCP #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Uddhav’s change of heart: Shiv Sena has finally woken up and read the numbers

It is probable that when the tempers cooled, and Sena looked at the finer details of the scorecard that it was willing to blink #Bal Thackeray #BJP #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Modi #Narendra Modi #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray

Needless fuss over NCP’s offer: Will the BJP repeat what it did in Delhi?

BJP doesn't have to do much except just go by NCP's statement, and if BJP had enough faith, it should go ahead and form government with the NCP. #BJP #Congress #India #Maharashtra #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Narendra Modi #NCP #Politics #PoliticsDecoder #Sharad Pawar #Shiv Sena #Uddhav Thackeray
