Voting trends counter Fadnavis’ prediction about Leader of Opposition being from VBA


Even as counting continue, the people’ mandate seems to go against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ prediction about the state’s legislative assembly having a Leader of Opposition from the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA).

At a
rally in Nanded earlier this month, Fadnavis had said that the Congress and NCP will not be able to get even 10 percent of seats and that Prakash Ambedkar’s party will stake claim to the post of the Leader of Opposition.

“The Assembly elections in Maharashtra will throw a new political permutation and combination. The opposition leader will be from the VBA. The Congress and NCP will not get even 10 percent seats to qualify for the post,” Fadnavis had said, while denying that the saffron party had an understanding with the VBA.

However, as per 4 pm figures, the VBA has not won in any seat and is leading in only one, while the Congress and NCP have together won 23 seats and are leading in 76 seats.

The BJP has won in 19 seats so far and the Shiv Sena in 14. The former is leading in 80 seats and the latter in 43.

Coming years will see Maharashtra, Haryana scale new height of development, says PM Narendra Modi


Addressing party cadre from the BJP headquarters in Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that even before Diwali, the people of Maharashtra have put their faith in the BJP. He lauded Devendra Fadnavis for excelling despite being a first time chief minister, adding that he kept working for people’s welfare.

“In 2014, BJP and Shiv Sena came together after the election. It was the people’s decision. Before 2014, BJP was always a junior party of the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra. For 50 years, no CM was able to serve the people for a full five-year term. Devendra Fadnavis got the opportunity to serve for full five years. Maharashtra and especially Mumbai contribute immensely to the country’s economy. Political stability is important there,” Modi said.

"These are unprecedented victories because normally these days few governments return after five years. In such times to be elected again is a big deal. The coming five years will see both the states scale new heights of development,” he said.

"I have seen that policies and schemes are better implemented in states where there is a BJP government. Other parties waste time in changing names of schemes," Modi further said.

Amit Shah addresses party cadre at BJP headquarters in Delhi


Addressing party cadre from the BJP headquarters in Delhi, union minister Amit Shah said that the Mahayuti alliance will form the government once again with majority.

"In five months, the Modi 2.0 government has done as much work as many have not been able to do in even five years. We passed the Triple Talaq law that was stuck for years and opened doors to development in Kashmir by revoking Articles 370 and 35A," Shah said, acknowledging that Maharashtra has not been the party’s stronghold.

“Our governments in Maharashtra and Haryana delivered for the people in the last five years. BJP delivered corruption-free governments in the state. Under Modi 2.0, BJP has started by winning two Assembly election,” he said congratulating Devendra Fadnavis.
