Can Raj-Rahul-Pawar Troika Halt BJP March in Maharashtra? What Sonia's Meeting With Thackeray Means
A few months ago, a meeting between MNS chief Raj Thackeray and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi would have been politically untenable.
If Raj Thackeray can be acceptable as a campaign partner, he might as well be a pre-poll ally and share seats with the Congress-NCP coalition.
But a coming together of the anti-BJP parties along with Raj Thackeray’s MNS could make the battle interesting.
Raj Thackeray’s charisma in urban areas, Sharad Pawar’s poll strategy and anti-incumbency could make Maharashtra an intense battle.
Will Raj, Rahul, Pawar troika arrest BJP’s march in Maharashtra, a state which has witnessed coalition rule since 1995.
