Taking a jibe at Presidential Rule, Uddhav Thackeray sarcastically said that the party had asked for two days extension but now they have six months of time.
Mumbai| ShivSena chief Uddhav Thackeray addressed a press conference for the first time after imposition of President’s Rule in the state. He was speaking to reporters at Hotel Retreat where ShivSena MLAs are stationed.
Responding to the claims of the Congress-NCP, Uddhav Thackeray confirmed that he approached the two parties only a day ago. Uddhav Thackeray said, “Our ally Bharatiya Janata Party had said that we were in talks with NCP-Congress since the day election results were announced. This claim by Congress-NCP exposes the lie.”
He further said that the ShivSena was asked to express the intent to form a government and show the letter of support by the governor. It was given time till 7.30 PM on Monday. “Maharashtra is a big state. We needed at least 48 hours more to conduct discussions to give a stable government to Maharashtra,” he stated.
Taking a jibe at Presidential Rule imposed in the state today, Uddhav Thackeray sarcastically said that the party had asked for two days extension but now they have six months of time. “Every state should have a governor like this,” he poked a fun.
Clarifying the clouds of suspicion over the alliance between Congress-NCP and Sena which are ideologically different he said that he is still waiting to see why BJP tied up with Nitish Kumar in Bihar and Mehbooba Mufti in Kashmir.
