Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis also made it clear that he had no problem in giving the post of Deputy Chief Minister to the Shiv Sena.
Mumbai| The dates for upcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra were announced today. However, the BJP-Shivsena alliance has yet not finalised the seat-sharing formula. There was a tussle between the two parties. Now, in an attempt to quell the dissent, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis has seemed to extend an olive branch to the ally.
Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis said on Saturday that the BJP and Shiv Sena will contest the upcoming assembly elections together. However, he said the talks for seat-sharing are still going on and the announcement can be expected in one to two days. Fadnavis also made it clear that he had no problem in giving the post of Deputy Chief Minister to the Shiv Sena. However, he also jokingly said that he will not give the post of the next Chief Minister of the state to anyone else.
“Sharad Pawar’s era came to an end”
In an event organized by a news channel, CM Fadnavis said that the era of NCP Chief Sharad Pawar‘s politics is over. “They broke and twisted parties. Watch the game of time cycle, now the same is happening with them,” Fadnavis said. He said that Prime Minister Modi built a trust inside the country. The CM rejected the media reports which said that out of 288 seats, BJP will contest 162 and Shiv Sena will contest 126 seats.
“No chance of other parties for the next 20-25 years”
He said that winning elections is important in politics. So people feel that the way Rahul Gandhi runs the party or the condition of the Congress, in such a situation, these parties have no chance for the next 20-25 years. In such a situation, if politics is to be done then it should be done with BJP and Modi.
