Open to considering Eknath Shinde proposal on government formation: BJP | India News

MUMBAI: BJP on Monday finally opened up about the Eknath Shinde-led revolt in Shiv Sena, refusing to call that camp “rebels” and saying it was open to considering proposals on government formation from the faction.
“We do not consider anyone a rebel. If two-thirds of the MLAs are with Shinde, how can they be called rebels?” asked senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar, speaking after a meeting at Devendra Fadnavis’ house.

So far, BJP had termed the Sena turmoil an internal matter of the party and refused to comment on it. However, after Monday’s Supreme Court order shielding the rebels, it immediately held a meeting of its state core committee.
“Based on the Supreme Court order, whatever proposals (on government formation) come forward will be considered. BJP is closely watching the day-to-day events, the core committee will meet again and take a decision at the appropriate time in the interest of the state and its people,” he added.
“Shiv Sena group leader Eknath Shinde has so far not given us any proposal. Whenever a proposal comes from Shiv Sena – since they call themselves the true Sena – we shall consider it,” he said.
