In fact, SS is in a point of no return. They simply cannot go back to BJP in present form without becoming an even bigger laughing stock. Furthermore, this is their best chance of getting CM post.
But I am seeing another possibility however remote. As many have pointed out, there is a big prejudice (or shall we say hatred) against Devender Fadnavis because he is a Brahmin, and there is a huge faulty line between Marathas and non Marathas. This is sad, but I think it will take time for Hinduthva to bridge this kind of caste divide. So for the moment, if a Maratha BJP leader were projected as the CM and that would help break away MLAs from SS, NCP, and Cong, I think Devender Fadnavis should sacrifice himself. Its sad, but party is bigger. And I am sure ModiJi can give him a position in the central cabinet where Fandavis's skills could be utilized.
I have a very strong feeling that fadnavis is being groomed for high office.
Right now, he is the BJP's best bet in MAH.
The congis and the NCP are actually scared of him because of how he decimated them in the rural areas and their traditional hinterland strongholds.
No fuss in the papers, no chest thumping, no breast beating, just silent, hard hitting, far reaching structural reforms that crippled the traditional power brokers and decimated their ranks. His assiduous and tirelessly diligent strikes at the very hearts of these family satraps are worthy of the deadly skills employed by a highly accomplished ninja assassin.
The SS did ask for his replacement and wanted gadkari in his place.
That's how apprehensive his political opponents are.
He comes across as the diffidently smiling, slightly pudgy, the harmless kid next door.
His political backers are in the top echelons of both the BJP and the RSS too.
And above all, he has a clean, non-controversial image, a rarity in Indian politics.
not many can sport such a fine pedigree.
