Nawab Malik demands from SS 

Nawab Malik while speaking to Republic TV, laid down a few demands by his party before entering a post-poll alliance and forming the government with Shiv Sena. He said, “If the governor is calling Shiv Sena, then it has to first announce that they are not in the NDA. They must part from the Bharatiya Janata Party and they must give a proposal (to the NCP) on how they want to go ahead. So, until and unless they resign from the Centre, they break relation with the BJP, they sent a proposal to us, no decision can be announced".

He stated that the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena can stake claim to form the government and accused Sena of betraying the mandate of the people of Maharashtra. "In the elections, BJP, RPI, Sena and other parties were given a mandate. Yesterday, the Governor invited the BJP to form the government. We fought for the alliance, got votes for the alliance. Sena does not want to be part of the alliance. Sena chose to insult the mandate. We won't form the government. We informed the Governor. If Sena has to go with NCP, Congress, we wish them good luck."
