After the Lok Sabha elections, the political chess game has started for the Maharashtra assembly elections. The combination of Congress, Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena (UBT) and Sharad Pawar’s NCP has been successful in Maharashtra. The morale of all three opposition parties is high. It has been agreed to contest the Assembly elections in October together, but there is no agreement on the CM’s post. Uddhav Thackeray’s name was put forward by the Shiv Sena (UBT) as the CM face in the assembly elections, but Sharad Pawar has rejected it. In such a situation, the question arises that Sharad Pawar is ready to contest elections together, but why is he not ready to contest elections against Uddhav Thackeray?

In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, out of 48 seats in Maharashtra, the BJP-led NDA won only 17 seats, while the constituent parties of the Congress-led Bharatiya Janata Party managed to win 30 seats. BJP included in NDA won 9 seats, Eknath Shinde’s Shiv Sena won 7 seats and Ajit Pawar’s NCP won one seat. At the same time, Congress, which is part of Bharat Gatbandhan, won 13 seats, Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena (UBIT) won 9 seats and Sharad Pawar’s party NCP won 8 seats. An independent candidate has won from Sangli.

Shiv Sena boosted Uddhav Thackeray’s face

The results of the Lok Sabha elections have left the three constituent parties of the Indian alliance in favor of trying their luck together in the 2024 assembly elections, but there is confusion over the Chief Minister’s face. Uddhav Thackeray’s name has been put forward by Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut for the CM face. He said that it would be dangerous for Mahavikas Aghadi to go to the polls in Maharashtra without a chief ministerial face. Maharashtra has seen how Uddhav Thackeray handled the state during the Corona period. People voted for MVA because of Uddhav Thackeray’s popularity, due to which the assembly elections should be fought on his face.

Sanjay Raut said that if the India Alliance had fielded Rahul Gandhi as the prime ministerial face in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, we would have got 25-30 more seats. People should know who they are voting for. Voting has been done on the names and faces of Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi. In such a situation they want to know the face. There is no difference between us as to who should be the face of our chief ministership. We are determined to fight assembly elections unitedly and we will win 175 to 180 assembly seats.

Why is Sharad Pawar not ready to face Uddhav?

Uddhav Thackeray’s name has been extended by the Shiv Sena (UBT) for the third time, but both the constituent parties of the alliance are not ready. Sharad Pawar dismissed Uddhav Thackeray’s name and said that our alliance is a collective face. One person cannot be the face of our chief ministership. The three allied forces will decide on this together. All small parties opposing PM Modi should be part of MVA. Whatever decision has to be taken regarding the face of the Chief Minister’s post will be taken through discussion and after taking everyone into confidence.

Sharad Pawar said that Arjuna’s target in Mahabharata was the eye of a fish, so our eyes are fixed on the elections in Maharashtra. Congress, NCP (SCP) and Shiv Sena (UBT) will contest the assembly elections together. Pawar said that talks on seat sharing for assembly elections in the state have not started, but will start soon. He said that people have given good response to all the three parties in 2024 Lok Sabha elections. But like these three parties Left parties, Peasants and Workers Party (PWP) were also part of the coalition, but we could not give them seats in the Lok Sabha. Apart from this he said that it is our moral responsibility to protect the interests of these parties. Efforts will be made to move ahead with these parties in the assembly elections.

A game of checkmate begins on the CM’s face.

Sharad Pawar is a seasoned player in Maharashtra politics. Sharad Pawar does not want to give any guarantee by putting his stamp of approval on Uddhav Thackeray’s name before the elections. In such a situation his political intention is that Maha Vikas Aghadi should contest the election under collective leadership and after the results decide who will be the Chief Minister. Leaders of the Pawar camp are of the view that contesting elections in the name of Uddhav Thackeray will not yield much political benefit. Just as the Lok Sabha elections were fought without any front, the assembly elections should also be fought in such a way that all parties get votes.

Political analysts also believe that if elections are contested under collective leadership, votes from all parties can be secured. Thackeray and Shiv Sena camps will be boosted if India Alliance enters the polls with Uddhav Thackeray’s face as CM candidate, but Congress and NCP workers and supporters may be disappointed. Due to which we will not be able to work with full dedication and hard work in the elections. Sharad Pawar is realizing this and because of the way the results have come in the Lok Sabha elections, even the Congress will not agree to make Uddhav Thackeray the CM face.

Talk of contesting election in collective leadership

There is a difference of two seats between Sharad Pawar’s NCP and Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena in the Lok Sabha elections. NCP (SP) got 7 and Shiv Sena (UBT) 9 seats, while Congress managed to win 13 seats. If Uddhav Thackeray contests, there is a fear of splitting the Muslim, Dalit and OBC votes. That is why Sharad Pawar has rejected Uddhav’s name and has talked about contesting elections under collective leadership. At the same time, the Shiv Sena (UBT) wants to get a nod on Uddhav’s name before the elections so that the Congress and Sharad Pawar cannot play any games after the results. Therefore, the game of checkmate has started regarding the CM’s face even before the election.
