Mumbai: As Amit Shah and Mamata Banerjee cross swords over the Battle for Bengal, a meeting of Union Home Minister Amit Shah and NCP leader Sharad Pawar has suddenly raised speculation over a sudden change in power dimensions of Maharashtra.
There are rumour bills abuzz about how once again the BJP and NCP could get into working together. When questioned, Home Minister Amit Shah himself said that everything cannot be made public.
The Home Minister’s comment has led to a lot of talk of new permutations and combinations in Mharashtra. He has not even denied this meeting in Ahmedabad. The secret meeting of the two big leaders happened a day before Holi.
In 2019, when Shiv Sena refused to form a government with BJP, then suddenly BJP and NCP leader Ajit Pawar formed the government overnight. It is therefore being speculated that some such equations may be formed again.
