The impasse over government formation is still on in Maharashtra.

BJP delegation met the Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and apprised him of the prevailing political situation in the state.

Tomorrow is the last day of the term of the current Maharashtra Assembly.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, BJP state president Chandrakant Patil admitted that it is taking more than normal time to forge an alliance between the BJP and the Shiv Sena.

He, however, exuded confidence that Fadnavis will lead the next government.
