The chapter on Maharashtra draws attention to the first sustentative victory of the BJP- Shiv Sena alliance in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and the Assembly elections held in the same year in the state. If the 2014 elections marked a demise of the much-dilapidated Congress system in state politics, the 2019 Lok Sabha polls verdict confirmed the arrival of a new party system in which the BJP is likely to replace Congress as the dominant player in the state politics in the years to come. The formation of the Maha Vikas Aghadi, a completely unexpected new alliance of Shiv Sena with the Indian National Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party in 2019 indicated that the regional variations of the yet unfolding patterns of the dominance of the BJP would be an interesting aspect of study for the students of Maharashtra politics in the coming years.
