A senior leader BJP leader has on Wednesday said that there would be no oath ceremony in Maharashtra without the Shiv Sena. Noticeably the Sena has taken another step towards its Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis's, second term amid its unrelenting demand for rotation of the top post between the two allies.

BJP sources revealed that a group of BJP MLAs recently met to elect Devendra Fadnavis as their leader - a formality before he is sworn in as Chief Minister for the second time.

However, soon after the election Fadnavis had said, “There should not be any speculation. We had said the government will be formed by the mahayuti (alliance)”.

While going through the motions, the party has been deep into back-channel negotiations to bring the Sena around by offering key posts including the post of Deputy Chief Minister. The BJP has, according to sources, also offered more portfolios to its cantankerous ally, both in Maharashtra and at the center. But the offer does not include top portfolios like Home, Finance and Revenue for now.

The Shiv Sena has so far stuck to the point it made right after the Maharashtra election results last week about a "50:50" deal that it said was discussed before the national elections earlier this year.

Uddhav Thackeray spoke about the deal at a press conference at the time, in the presence of BJP chief Amit Shah and Devendra Fadnavis. Favnavis, on the other hands denied that such a deal was discussed in his presence. There will be no government without the Sena. We will form the government together. There will be no swearing in without the Sena," Girish Mahajan, a senior BJP leader close to Mr Fadnavis, told NDTV.
