Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray, in a speech on Thursday, caused a flutter in the BJP led-Maharashtra government when he said the Sena will quit the government in 2018 and come to power on its own.

However, BJP leaders firmly believe that Sena will not dare to pull out and the government will complete its five-year term.

Senior BJP leader and revenue minister Chandrakant Patil told Hindustan Times, “There are no differences between the two ruling parties and our government will complete its five year term.”

Another senior BJP leader said, “Aaditya has clarified that the final decision will be taken by Uddhav . There will be a farce of pulling out just ahead of Assembly election that are expected to be held any time between October 2018 and May 2019, much ahead of their scheduled dates. In such a case, Aaditya’s statement may come true just a few days before the elections. But, it would not lead to dissolution of government as no party is in mood of going to the elections now.”

Aaditya, while addressing a public meeting in Ahmednagar had said, “Uddhav Thackeray will decide when we will leave the government.”

Uddhav, during a tour of western Maharashtra last month urged farmers and small business owners to speak up against the government. “We are formulating our strategy; we are building and strengthening our base in areas where it is needed,” said a senior Sena leader.

Aaditya, in his speech, had urged the cadre and said “all of you have to work together to bring about a change” once Sena pulls the plug.
