BJP eyes Sena’s seats, stalemate delays seat-sharing pact

Even as the Ajit Pawar faction managed to bag six seats despite having only one sitting MP, the BJP is insisting on some seats held by the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena. The latter will probably end up ceding a couple of constituencies such as Nashik, Palghar, Hingoli and one or the other from Thane and Kalyan, and will thus be restricted to 13 seats, equal to the number of MPs it currently has. The party’s seeming failure to retain incumbents’ seats and safeguard the interests of the sitting MPs who switched loyalties during the Shiv Sena split in 2022 has created a lot of angst
