Unhappy over the current political scenario in Maharashtra, Aurangabad lawyer Ratnakar Chaure has filed a complaint against Uddhav Thackeray alleging that he along with BJP has "betrayed the mandate of people bu severing ties with BJP after the elections." 'Shiv Sena, NCP, Congress Alliance Unlikely to Last Beyond 6-8 Months,' Says Nitin Gadkari.

"In 2019 Vidhan Sabha elections, Shiv Sena, BJP and others in Aurangabad including Uddhav Thackeray have sought votes in the name of 'Hinduism'. But after elections, he broke the alliance and President rule was imposed in Maharashtra. This is a betrayal to the people's mandate. Uddhav Thackeray has betrayed the people of Maharashtra for the post of Chief Minister," said Chaure.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could not stake claim to form a government as its ally Shiv Sena remained firm on 2.5 years for the Chief Minister's post each and equal Cabinet portfolios. The Shiv Sena is now in discussions with the NCP and Congress to form a government.
