Maharashtra Assembly number game: Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress vs BJP-led opposition

Mumbai: With the Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) all set to come together to form government in Maharashtra with the outside support of the Congress, the over 19-day-long political uncertainty in the state is likely to end. The 105-member Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its alliance partner Shiv Sena, which had 56 MLAs, have been unable to reconcile their differences over power-sharing and the chief minister ever since the result of the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly election was declared on October 24, 2019.

A Shiv Sena-NCP government along with a few Independent MLAs and the outside support of the Congress will easily cross the majority mark of 145 in Maharashtra Assembly. While the Shiv Sena has 56 MLAs, it also claims the support of 7 Independents and along with the 54-member NCP and the 44-MLA strong Congress, the group will have 161 legislators on its side.

On the other hand, the opposition camp will have the BJP, which is the single-largest party of the Assembly with 105 MLAs, All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) 2, Bahujan Vikas Aaghadi 3, Communist Party of India (Marxist) 1, Independents 6, Jan Surajya Shakti 1, Krantikari Shetkari Party 1, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena 1, Peasants And Workers Party of India 1, Prahar Janshakti Party 2, Rashtriya Samaj Paksha 1, Samajwadi Party 2 and Swabhimani Paksha 1. Their total strength stands at 117.
