Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will be in Delhi today to meet home minister Amit Shah to discuss the politics and farmers' issues. The BJP and the Shiv Sena, which fought the assembly polls in an alliance, are caught in a stalemate over the chief minister's post, with the Sena demanding an equal division of the top post's tenure and the BJP rejecting it.
CM Fadnavis is also likely to discuss with Shah aids from the National Disaster Relief Fund (NDRF) to farmers affected by unseasonal rains across the state, reported PTI, citing sources. The state government has already announced a Rs 10,000 crore package for the farmers. The opposition parties and the Shiv Sena termed the package inadequate considering the several lakh hectares of crops that have been damaged.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar is likely to meet Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi in Delhi today to discuss the political situation in Maharashtra. After the meeting, the two parties may clarify their stand whether to support the Shiv Sena.
