The political drama unfolding in Maharashtra which finally led to imposition of President Rule is what today’s politics is all about. Parties forming pre-poll alliance do not respect the alliance agreement, while political opponents try to form post-poll alliance on condition does not click. This is the condition of BJP and Shiv Sena and similarly Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress. While BJP-Shiv Sena could have formed the government easily, the Sena leaders’s demand for Chief Ministerial berth despite winnin half the number of seats won by the BJP, did not sound well. President Rule may continue for 6 months, till the political parties think otherwise to form a government.
