Maharashtra Crisis: Why BJP central leadership is quiet and indifferent?

Any guesses why the central leadership of the BJP is quiet and indifferent towards the political development in Maharashtra? If some political insiders are to be believed Devendra Fadnavis has apparently disturbed the game plan of the BJP in the state. Had he followed the advice of central leadership without suggesting his ideas, things would have been quite different.

Reportedly, the central leadership is unhappy with former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis for his greed that allowed more and more concessions to the Shiv Sena. Sources said that party president Amit Shah had clearly advised Fadnavis not to give more than 110 seats to the Shiv Sena (SS) in the Assembly but he managed to convince party leadership for 125 seats to SS with a promise of sweeping Maharashtra elections.

In the 2014 elections ties between the BJP-SS were snapped for similar reasons and his time round the BJP was rather better off in the state but Fadnavis did not want to take a chance for becoming CM for second time. The sources in the BJP said that the party wanted to get rid of SS for once and all and this seems to have been done with these unpleasant development. They wanted to expose them on many counts.

The BJP leadership does not only want to teach a lesson to Shiv Sena but also Fadnavis whose personal ambition has put the party in such a predicament and analysts feel that the number that the BJP managed to get in Assembly elections with alliance could have been better, had the party contested elections alone.

Fadnavis' play with state IAS officers

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis is said to have done no favour to his own image by transferring on Monday the senior-most serving IAS officer Medha Gadgil out of the state secretariat. The move is seen heavily tiled by extraneous consideration of Medha's husband, Anant, being in the Congress Party. 

 

Medha, who still has six months of service left, has now been posted as the chairperson-cum-managing director of Maharashtra State Financial Corporation, which is considered a side posting.


This is the second blow to her otherwise distinguished career since Fadnavis became the CM in 2014. In April 2018, Dinesh Kumar Jain (also 1983 batch) had superseded her to become the state’s chief secretary, after which Gadgil had gone on a month-long leave before returning to work. Despite being the senior-most IAS officer, Gadgil was also kept out of the Civil Services Board.

 

Kishor Nimbalkar, an IAS officer who is 20 batches junior to Gadgil, has been named her successor in the Relief and Rehabilitation Department.

 

Her transfer comes at a time when drought relief work is being executed on a large scale in the state.

 

With Medha out of the state secretariat, Jain is now the senior-most officer in the state secretariat. Last June, Fadnavis had moved out former Additional Chief Secretary, Sudhir Srivastava (1983 batch), who was senior to Jain and appointed him the chairman of the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board. Meanwhile, Dr. Nidhi Pandey (2001), who was previously the MD of the state financial corporation, has been posted as the Member-Secretary of the 5th Maharashtra Financial Corporation.
