Modi party forced out in India's richest state
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party was forced out of power Tuesday in Maharashtra state, home to the country's financial capital Mumbai, following the collapse of its short-lived coalition.
Hard-fought state elections last month saw Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) win the largest share of seats but not enough to form a go nment on its own, prompting weeks of haggling that culminated in the imposition of presidential rule on Maharashtra two weeks ago.
The BJP managed to eke out a surprise agreement with a top leader from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Saturday, but victory was fleeting, after other NCP leaders denounced the deal, leading to its dissolution.
BJP lawmaker Devendra Fadnavis resigned as chief minister Tuesday, telling reporters that the party could not form a go nment.
Although the BJP had previously governed the country's richest state in a coalition with its right-wing regional ally Shiv Sena, the alliance broke up after the October election due to a power-sharing dispute.
Shiv Sena and its ideological rivals, the centre-left Indian National Congress, and the NCP are expected to stake a joint claim to form a go nment instead.
"The fact that these parties, which have so little in common, are coming together just to keep the BJP out -- this has very dangerous implications for Modi and his party," said Dhaval Kulkarni, author of a book on Shiv Sena.
"After all the horse-trading last week, the BJP has basically ended up with egg on its face," he told AFP.
India has been battling an economic slowdown, and the loss of power in Maharashtra, whose capital Mumbai is home to business tycoons, the stockmarket and the glitzy Bollywood film industry, is a big blow to Modi.

Did Yahoo ever published articles when the cong party forced out of many states. IT is an attempt by Yahoo and the paid writer just to defame Modi. Modi is the best thing for India whether you like it or not
RSS people in BJP are arm twisting the governors, judges and even using CBI to even cancel the Corruption cases against opposite party MLAs to get their support to form BJP go nment in Mumbai. They did so, in Ayodha Babri masjid case judgement (by rewarding Babri mosque land to the perperators destroyers and hooligans of babri mosque making Supreme Court judgement a laughing stock in Whole World. This is how hindu rashtra under High caste hindu RSS works when they do not want to follow Indian Constitution and Justice.
印度人民党成员对政府官员、法官施加压力，甚至利用印度联邦调查局取消针对反对党联盟的附败案，以获得他们的支持，在孟买组建人民党政府。他们在Ayodha Babri masjid案件判决中（通过将Babri土地奖励给Babri的破坏者和流氓，使得最高法院的判决成为全世界的笑柄）。这就是当他们不想遵循印度宪法和正义时印度教RSS高种姓下的《印度拉什特拉》的运作方式。
Set back for Modi. Sad day for Fadnavis and the BJP and a great day for India on its constitution day and the anniversary of 26/11. Fadnavis was one of the best CM of Maharashtra but he paid the price for accepting the deceptive hand of the corrupt Ajit Pawar just to stay in power.
Shiv Sena has now become Shav Sena or Sonia Sena. Shiv Sena USED BJP to get votes in the Assembly Elections. But even after getting only some 50 seats, it started speaking with the opposition to make alliances in order to get the State's Top Most Post of Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Son-love (PutraMoh) and the lust for power became Shiv Sena's only purpose. That tied with the opposition to get rid of BJP. BJP must seek a Re Election.
湿婆神军党现在变成了Shav Sena或Sonia Sena。Shiv Sena利用人民党在议会选举中获得选票。但即使只获得了约50个席位，它也开始与反对派对话，以结盟，以获得马哈拉施特拉邦最高职位的首席部长。这与反对党想要摆脱人民党有关。人民党必须寻求连任。
"The fact that these parties, which have so little in common, are coming together just to keep the BJP out -- this has very dangerous implications for Modi and his party,"
How long will this coalition last ? How soon will these corrupt politicians fight over the sharing of the loot ?? That is the fundamental question !!!
BJP will have the last laugh !!!
Hopefully the high profile political drama have come to an end. And a lesson learned by all those who made mockery of the Constitution. Eventually a stable go nment should be formed now as claimed who can look into the interest of poor farmers and people of state of Maharashtra , India.
Mr. Modi didn't contact NCP. However, Shiv Sena contacted congress and NCP so, who is playing games here.
The regional parties should be in power in their regions. Only then will there be some check and opposition.
A 2019 Harvard study examined a 5,000 year old DNA of an ancient woman from India and found Hindus are not an Aryan race, let alone issuers of any other master race. Instead, it found them recepients and offshoots of numerous other races. This indisputable finding completely discredits Hindutva fascist ideology and racist-bigoted caste-system because both leverage the fake racial superiority myth. Why have the guru know-nothings and pundit-jhootas been desperately telling a lie for centuries? Hindis (still) need to answer.
modi the butcher is losing. Good for india.
People seem to forget that BJP won 105 seats, almost twice many as any other party. This was long term planning to finish Shiv Sena. Wait till COnrgress start pushing Muslim agenda. Ullu will have to choose between Marathi Manoos and arch enemies of Shivaji, [who is regarded as Marathi god] Muslims.
Why do you insist on calling the BJP as "Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)?" Why don't you also call the American Republican Party as "Trump's Anti-nonwhite and Anti-immigrant party?" If not why not? Your bias is showing clearly so it is not worth reading anything you write or disseminate.
When the majority of India is BJP, good luck to Maharashtra in finding any help centrally.
Dont worry ..BJP will come back within 6months as Karnataka.
Shouldn't have gone onstage with Trump. Trump is bad luck.
LOVE ONE AMERICA
Shiv Sena is Responsible for That Next election I Hope Shiv Sena and Looted company will out after Maharashtra empty out Jai Hind

This all happened because of Shiv Sena, the deceivers to their friends and contacted Congress. What a shame?
BJP is as corrupt as other parties plus religious intolerance.
Awesome, worst dirtiest folks are gone, enough of their fake patriotism, giving ordinary citizen hard time.
Democracy is kind of luxury & for the first world intelligent people not for Africa, Middle east, Asian fools,etc.
Forget about this richest state garbage. BJP got the rude shock it deserves from Supreme Court of India. People re-elected Modi because of the perceived clean image he has in public. He should stop playing these dumb #$%$ politics that Congress p-arty used to play. What the country needs is pro-development and anti- co ption policies implemented. If he doesn't deliver the country will be in the hands of Congress dynasty rule. Good luck Modi Sir!!
