BJP intends to retain Mahayuti’s position as state leader


Mumbai: Following the impending assembly elections in the state of Maharashtra, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said  that it will not be changing the current leadership structure in the state. The BJP further said that it is developing a plan for the Shiv Sena-BJP-NCP alliance to triumph in the next assembly elections later this year.


The choice was made after a meeting of the Maharashtra BJP core committee that included Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party president JP Nadda. “Nothing will change. Maharashtra has to have a strong Mahayuti-NDA government, according to Union Minister Piyush Goyal.

The Mahayuti’s dismal showing in the Lok Sabha elections and their plan to win the assembly polls were addressed at this discussion. This meeting was also attended by state BJP leader Chandrashekhar Bawankule, senior BJP leaders BL Santosh, Bhupender Yadav, Ashwini Vaishnaw, Sudhir Mungantiwar, Chandrakant Patil, Pankaja Munde, Raosaheb Danve, and Vinod Tawde.

The BJP gained only 9 seats in the state in the 2024 general elections, compared to 23 in 2019. Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, said shortly after the results were announced that he would step down from the Mahayuti cabinet and concentrate on organizing the BJP to win the Assembly elections.

He attended the conference as well. According to Fadnavis, there was just a 0.3% difference in the vote shares of the opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and the governing Mahayuti.

“The difference between Mahayuti and MVA is just 0.3 percent, so we discussed in detail where we lost votes, where we faced problems, and the corrective actions that need to be taken,” he said.

The top BJP official said that a strategy for the next assembly elections was prepared and that the performance in the Lok Sabha elections was reviewed. He continued by saying that the BJP’s allies in Maharashtra, the Ajit Pawar-led NCP and the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena, would soon start working on a plan for the Vidhan Sabha elections.

Furthermore, we spoke about our plan of action in front of the Maharashtra Vidhan Sabha elections. We will soon work with our NDA colleagues to create our blueprint for the Vidhan Sabha elections,” he said.
