India's ruling party suffers setback as richest state slips out of its control
By Rajendra Jadhav
MUMBAI (Reuters) - In a setback, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party has decided not to form the go nment in the western state of Maharashtra - the country's richest - leaving opposition groups scrambling on Monday to cobble together an alliance.
孟买(路透社) - 印度总理纳伦德拉•莫迪领导的执政党遭遇挫折，决定不在该国最富裕的邦-位于西部的马哈拉施特拉邦组建政府，这使反对派团体周一忙于组建联盟。
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged as the single largest part in a state election in Maharashtra last month, and was expected to comfortably retain power with the help of its regional ally, the Shiv Sena.
But in-fighting between the BJP and the Shiv Sena, which has gone on for a fortnight, has culminated in the allies parting ways, dealing the first major political blow to Modi's ruling party since it retained power with a landslide mandate in a May general election.
On Sunday, the BJP's state president Chandrakant Patil said his party had decided to not stake claim to form go nment.

the power did not slip out of BJP
Here is my prediction. Within 3 months 2 of the 3 parties (Shiv Sena, Congress, NCP) will break and join hand with BJP to form go nment.
BJP had an arrangement with Shiv Sena BEFORE the election to support each other !
But after the election, the SS being a junior partner, demanded equal share in the cabinet including 50:50 Chief Ministership.
BJP refused the quixotic SS demand and informed the governor that it would NOT form the go nment.
The SS marathas are the betrayers !!

Wrong. It is not the richest state. Mumbai is the financial capital of India but Maharashtra is the not the richest state in the India. Check your facts first.

There won't be BJP- Shiv Sena alliance in next election. Congress will capitalize on Shiv Sena's power hunger and make them look bad in Maharashtra, this is the end of Thakrey.

Shiv Sena at least at moment is crazy to think they can run the state with Congees. if they think congee is better than BJP it is like Jayachandra believing in Ghori.

I don't think Rajendra Jadhav of Reuters knows a #$%$ , BJP still could have formed a go nment, Narinder Modi is smart and knows what he is doing for not forming the go nment under these conditions, watch it would be under Fed rule in few months
