MLC Election

On 10 May, NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) declared 2 candidates for the upcoming Maharashtra MLC election. BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) has announced four candidates. Shiva Sena and Congress declared two candidates each for the polls. This takes the total number of candidates for the Maharashtra MLC election to 10.

BJP-Shiv Sena Reunion in Maharashtra

Enthused by an overwhelming mandate in General Elections this year, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to be on a mission mode to make the country Congress-free. To achieve this goal, the party would like to keep all its allies together.

Is shiv sena support to bjp a clever political move

After a brief and dramatic separation just before the Maharashtra Assembly elections, the BJP and the Shiv Sena are courting each other in full public glare for the past few days at the altar of power! As I write this piece, the Sena has blinked at the Lotus that has bloomed in glory in Maharashtra politics. Yet, what makes their love-hate-love story more twisty and twirly is the BJP’s overlooking of the advances from a […]

new chief minister of maharashtra - devendra fadnavis

Devendra Fadnavis is now the cynosure of all eyes as the 44-year-old leader has been chosen to head the BJP-Shiv Sena coalition government as Chief Minister. Fadnavis certainly has the political pedigree to justify his selection. He started off his political career from the grassroots and went on to be appointed president of Yuva Morcha, BJP’s youth wing in 1989. Soon after, at the young age of 27, he was elected as the Mayor of […]

BJP wins in Haryana and Maharashtra

So the results for the two assembly elections are out. BJP has a clear majority in Haryana, and is the largest party in Maharashtra. At the tie of writing this article, NCP has already offered unconditional outside support to BJP, so a BJP government is certain in both these states. However, we have got Maharashtra numbers wrong.
