Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Nov 2 (ANI): Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will soon form a government in Maharashtra.
"There is no problem in Maharashtra. Soon the government will be formed there," Naqvi told reporters when asked about the political crisis in Maharashtra over power-sharing between BJP and Shiv Sena.

In the recently held Assembly polls, the BJP won 105 seats and Shiv Sena 56 in the 288-member assembly.
The NCP and the Congress also fought the polls in alliance with each other, winning 54 and 44 seats respectively.
Speaking about the dignity and empowerment of women without discrimination in Uttar Pradesh, Naqvi said: "We believe in development with dignity and empowerment without discrimination"
The Union Minister said that the government's aim is set up more than 5 lakh smart classes in India and Uttar Pradesh in coming years. (ANI)
