As Maharashtra goes Bihar way, how BJP looks to change power equations in both states

IndiaTimes Thursday, 30 June 2022
As Maharashtra got a new chief minister on Thursday evening with Eknath Shinde, the leader of the rebel faction of the Shiv Sena, taking oath of office, it became the second state after Bihar where the BJP does not have its CM despite the party having more MLAs than its alliance partner. However, the power equations may change after the next assembly elections in both states.
