Amid political deadlock in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Thursday took to Twitter to say, "I am better off being bad as when I was good what medal did I get?" Interestingly, NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik responded to Sanjay Raut’s tweet in a poetical style. In a tweet, Malik said, "What proof should I give you that the path is filled with difficulties, but when the path is found the difficulties lay forgotten."
This comes a day after NCP's Majeed Memon confirmed that Congress President Sonia Gandhi has given her nod for an alliance with Shiv Sena. On November 17, Sonia Gandhi met NCP chief Sharad Pawar on November 17, to discuss the possibility of an alliance with the ideologically differing Shiv Sena.

On Wednesday, Sharad Pawar met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament, over the issues being faced by farmers in Maharashtra.
It is worth mentioning here that BJP and Shiv Sena, who contested the Maharashtra Assembly elections together and bagged 161 seats in the 288-member house, had a dispute over the distribution of portfolios. Shiv Sena, which won 56 seats to the BJP's 105, had demanded Chief Minister's post, suggesting a two-and-a-half-year rotation between the parties.
In a press conference held on October 24, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray demanded the BJP to honour the 50:50 agreement made during his meeting with Amit Shah earlier this year." “Shiv Sena contested less seats on BJP's request; we can't be so accommodating always," he had said.
Whereas, the Congress-NCP alliance has won 102 seats in Maharashtra despite Congress chief Sonia Gandhi not addressing a rally in the state.
