Lok Sabha Election 2024: Grand Alliance: Satara, Madha, Ratnagiri stalled; Tidha will be released after Dhulwadi leader

Mumbai, Leading News Service : The seat sharing rift of the BJP, Shiv Sena and NCP grand alliance continues, and the seat sharing of Satara, Madha and Ratnagiri-Sindhudurg constituencies is still stalled. Horses are also stuck on which and how many seats to give to the 'MNS' which is preparing to participate in the Grand Alliance. It became clear on Friday that the final decision will be taken in Delhi.

The inclusion of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has further compounded the embarrassment. MNS has demanded at least two seats in the Grand Alliance. The discussion is going on about which and whose quota seats should be given to MNS. It was expected that Chief Minister Eknath Shinde would visit Delhi on Friday and finalize the seat allocation. However, his tour has been delayed. Now the seat distribution of the Grand Alliance is likely to be finalized in Delhi after Dhulwadi.

The Grand Alliance has set a target of winning more than 45 seats from Maharashtra to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister for the third time. However, it has not been easy to achieve this target as the Mahavikas Aghadi has also raised a challenge in the state. Therefore, BJP has made a move to take Raj Thackeray along with it. BJP's ploy is to take advantage of MNS in districts like Mumbai, Thane, Nashik and Pune. Moreover, the grand alliance will get a star campaigner in the form of Raj Thackeray. Raj Thackeray has demanded two seats from South Mumbai, Nashik and Shirdi; But BJP has shown readiness to give one seat to Raj Thackeray. However, the final solution has not been reached.

Soldiers insist that Raj Thackeray should contest the election

The office bearers of 'MNS' Nashik have demanded that Raj Thackeray himself should contest the election from Nashik; While the name of Bala Nandgaonkar from South Mumbai or Shirdi is in discussion. From Nashik, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Chhagan Bhujbal from NCP is also eager to become active in national politics by contesting the Lok Sabha elections. Therefore, the embarrassment of Nashik Constituency continues. Hemant Godse, the sitting Shiv Sena MP from Nashik, is all set to contest the elections again. Chief Minister Shinde is not ready to leave this constituency.

BJP's claim on Ratnagiri-Sindhudurg

In Ratnagiri-Sindhudurg constituency, Kiran Samant, brother of minister Uday Samant, is gearing up to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Shiv Sena; But BJP has still maintained its claim on this seat.

Along with Shiv Sena, BJP has also maintained its claim on Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar Lok Sabha constituency. The names of Minister Sandipan Bhumre from Shiv Sena, Union Minister of State Bhagwat Karad and State Housing Minister Atul Save from BJP are in discussion. The final decision on this constituency will also be taken in Delhi.

Udayan Raj's base in Delhi

The battle of Satara and Madha constituencies is not over yet. For the past two days, MP Udayanraje Bhosle has been camping in Delhi to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah. However, they have not met. He insists on contesting the election from Satara on BJP's symbol, while MP Ranjitsinh Naik-Nimbalkar's candidature is being opposed from Madhya Pradesh, so there is a discussion in the grand coalition about leaving this seat to Ajit Pawar's NCP; But the final decision on the exchange of Satara and Madha constituencies will be taken in Delhi.
