Eknath Shinde will meet with Fadnavis in Mumbai to discuss government formation.

As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) strategises the takeover of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena rebel leader Eknath Shinde on Thursday, 30 June, arrived in Mumbai, where he is likely to meet the BJP's Devendra Fadnavis and the Maharashtra Governor. While rebel MLA Deepak Kesarkar said that their faction will form a government with the BJP soon, Shinde said that no discussion had been held with the BJP on the number of ministerial posts that will be given to the rebel MLAs in the new government yet. He also told reporters that the rebel MLAs were not happy that Uddhav Thackeray had resigned as chief minister. This comes after Uddhav Thackeray announced his resignation as chief minister on Wednesday night, in a turn of events that has altered the fate of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance. "We will work and come to power on our own once again," Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told reporters on Thursday morning. The BJP is now the single largest party in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. "The next steps will be decided by Fadnavis and Eknath Shinde," state BJP chief Chandrakant Patil said.
