BJP core group to meet again, decide on Governors invitation

Mumbai: After the BJP's core group meeting at the CM's residence today, MLA Sudhir Mungattiwar said the party will meet again at 4 pm to take a decision on the Governor's invitation to form the government. This comes amid Congress leader Milind Deora pitched saying that the Governor should invite NCP-Congress – the second largest alliance – to form the government as the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance has refused to do so.

Launching a fresh salvo at Devendra Fadnavis, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday accused the former Maharashtra chief minister of indulging in politics of fear and also likened him to German dictator Adolf Hitler. "When ways of threatening and seeking political support don't work, it is time to accept that Hitler is dead and the looming clouds of slavery have disappeared," Raut said in the party's editorial mouthpiece.

Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will today meet the party MLAs, who are presently putting up at a resort in Malad, to discuss the ongoing impasse. The BJP core committee, on the other hand, will also meet discuss the invitation by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to prove the party's majority in the Assembly by Monday. Following the 15-day-long impasse with the Shiv Sena over the post of chief minister, the governor on Saturday evening asked the BJP to "indicate willingness and ability" to form the government.
