Amit Shah told me Sena did try to preach but we push the talk saying will see to it in Rajya Sabha, Nitin Gadkari cleared
Mumbai| Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Davendra Fadnavis addressed the Press Meet today stating the alliance still exist and we are open to talk to ShivSena. After which, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari gave his reaction saying, Amit Shah clearly said no 50-50 talk was discussed while Lok Sabha elections.
Nitin Gadkari said while talking to press said, ‘After reading the headlines from the newspaper of 50-50 talks, I called Amitji and ask him about the whole Scenario.”
He further added, ‘It was not a brief discussion at that time just a word of exchange in hurry.” He also said that BJP will have its own Chief Minister.
“When I was functioning as a politician Balasaheb Thackeray said whoever owns more seats, owns the Chief Minister post. The same understanding still continues and everyone is following it,” Gadkari said.
“The very first day when the result announced ShivSena Chief Uddhavji said we have our options open than the alliance won’t have any meaning,” He said.
On Raut’s comment forming governments with NCP-INC, Gadkari replied, “I don’t think so in a democracy this kind of alliance exists for long. It’s a faulty decision. Sena is open to doing alliance with anyone. But the alliance BJP-Sena hold is base on Hindutva as it’s for the right of people, State and nation. And as far as I know ShivSena performance I don’t think they will go with them.”
