Athawale, the President of the Republican Party of India, is a Rajya Sabha MP from Maharashtra. In the wake of the two major political turbulence--Devendra Fadnavis sworn in as the Chief Minister with Ajit Pawar as Deputy Chief Minister on November 23 and two days later, on November 28, Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray sworn in as the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) Chief Minister.

Two-Three-Year Power-Share Formula

As per reports, Athawale has suggested for BJP and Shiv Sena to come together to form a stable government. He had also suggested a two-three-year power-share formula that can be mutually discussed within the two parties. The internal differences in the MVA government will act as a catalyst for the collapse of the present coalition, resulting in fresh assembly elections.

The ‘Political Earthquake’ is expected in the State because the MVA -- the coalition of Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress -- have non-identical ideologies and Rahul Gandhi’s recent statement on Savarkar will add to the earthquake’s magnitude.
