New Delhi: In the last eight years, the BJP at the Center has overthrown several state governments through political sabotage and the Maharashtra state government is likely to join the chain.
After the BJP-majority government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, the BJP has been successful in overthrowing various state governments. These include Arunachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Sikkim and Manipur. The BJP came to power in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly without electing a single member. In 2016, 40 Congress MLAs formed a separate group led by Pema Khandu. A few months later, the group merged with the BJP.
In Karnataka too, 16 MLAs from the Janata Dal (S) and Congress governments parted ways and Yeddyurappa again formed the government in 2019. The Congress government was formed in Madhya Pradesh under the leadership of Kamal Nath, but in 2018, 26 Congress MLAs resigned and the minority government had to resign. After this Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government came to power. Of the 26 MLAs who resigned, 19 were re-elected.
The Congress had 27 MLAs and the BJP 21 in the Manipur Legislative Assembly. However, the Governor called BJP to establish power and after that 9 Congress MLAs separated and joined BJP.
During this, BJP’s eyes fell on Shiv Sena. Some of the Shiv Sena MLAs under the leadership of Eknath Shinde are in Guwahati. Will this rebellion succeed in Maharashtra? This will become clear in a few hours.
