Finally, after a long struggle, the political storm in Maharashtra came to an end. Rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde took oath as the Chief Minister with the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party. To say, from the capital of the country to the political corridors of different states, the political storm of Maharashtra has stopped, but in reality the tests and challenges of the new government are about to start again. These challenges are to begin with the upcoming Maharashtra Municipal Corporation elections and the new cabinet formed in Maharashtra.
After the formation of the government, the biggest challenge is to bring a new cabinet in Maharashtra. Although sources say that everything has already been decided regarding the cabinet, but till the new cabinet is not formed, the suspense will remain intact. According to sources, Eknath Shinde, the leader of the rebel MLAs has been made the Chief Minister, so there is a discussion going on to make more and more BJP MLAs ministers in the cabinet. Nine ministers who were involved in the Uddhav government are also included in all the MLAs who revolted with Shinde. Sources say that all these nine ministers may get a chance again in the Shinde government. Whereas the talk of making more MLAs ministers from the BJP is coming to the fore. Sources say that Eknath Shinde will definitely face a big challenge regarding which rebel MLA should be made a minister in the cabinet and who should be left out.
These names can be stamped
According to the information received from the rebel leaders of BJP and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, the names of BJP’s Sudhir Mungantiwar, Rajendra Patni, Sanjay Kute, Ashish Shelar, Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar, Madhuri Nishal, Jaykumar Rawal, Girish Mahajan, Chandrashekhar Bawankule and Ramkrishna Vikhe Patil are in discussion. Its going on. Sources say that apart from these names, the names of Vijay Kumar Gavit, Kishan Kathore, Suresh Khade, Yogesh Sagar and Ravindra Chauhan can be stamped. According to sources, more than 40 ministers can be included in the Eknath Shinde government formed in Maharashtra. Political analyst MN Kulkarni says that whatever cabinet will be formed, not only will the form of further political expansion by keeping caste equations be seen, but the complete math and maths of the civic elections to be held in Maharashtra will also be included.
Waiting for BMC elections
Not only will it be challenging to brainstorm the names of Eknath Shinde to be included in the cabinet expansion, but the impact of Shinde’s influence in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region is also to be seen in the upcoming municipal elections. Political analyst MN Khandekar says that the state’s Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has a student state of his own in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). At present, Shiv Sena’s influence remains intact in most of the municipal corporations and other bodies of Maharashtra. Now Eknath Shinde is to be tested in the civic polls to be held in the next few months. Especially in the Mumbai metropolitan region, in which Shinde has a strong hold for a long time, the results will prove his strength. There are seven municipal corporations in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. While this region also includes 60 assembly seats along with 10 Lok Sabha seats. Political analysts say that the results of these 10 Lok Sabha seats and 60 assembly seats in the upcoming BMC elections will also decide the politics of 2024. Khandekar says that Eknath Shinde’s stature will also be judged by the BMC result and along with that the direction of political future will also be decided.
