New Delhi: Rebel Shiv Sena leader and next  Chief Minister of Maharashtra  Eknath Shinde today thanked BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis saying he could have become Chief Minister going by the numbers but “he showed a big heart”.

“Nobody lets go even the post of Panchayat head,” he said, with Mr.Devendra  Fadnavis by his side after the big unprecedented announcement.

Mr. Fadnavis made the surprise announcement hours before the oath ceremony. He also claimed that he would not be part of the government himself but will offer support from outside.

The cabinet expansion will take place shortly.

Devendra Fadnavis further said he won’t be a part of the government but will support the government.

“In the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections, people voted for the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance but that mandate was insulted and Maha Vikas Aghadi government was formed,” Said the former CM.

“On one hand, Shiv Sena opposed Dawood (Ibrahim) and on the other hand, they kept such a man in the cabinet who went to jail on allegations of helping Dawood. They were in alliance with someone who insulted Savarkar”, Mr fadnavis added.

He further said, “In 2019 BJP & Shiv Sena had an alliance & we got the required numbers in Assembly elections. We hoped to form the govt but Shiv Sena chose to get into an alliance with those against whom Balasaheb protested throughout his life.”

Slamming the shiv sena for compromising with the  “Hindutva ideology he said, “Shiv Sena allied with those who are against Hindutva & Savarkar. Shiv Sena insulted the mandate of the people.”

“After the swearing-in ceremony today, we will have a cabinet expansion and Shiv Sena and BJP leaders will take the oath. I will stay out of the government,” the BJP leader said.

Concluding his address he said “It will be my responsibility to ensure that the government works properly. This is not a fight for power but Hindutva.”

This will be the first time Maharashtra will get a Chief Minister from the Thane district.
