After resigning as Chief Minister , Devendra Fadnavis launched a blistering attack on its ally Shiv Sena. Fadnavis blamed ally Shiv Sena for the impasse over government formation after the assembly polls.
“The governor has accepted my resignation. I thank the people of Maharashtra for giving me the chance to serve them for the last five years,” Fadnavis said at a press conference in Mumbai.
Refuting the Shiv Sena’s claim, Fadnavis asserted that ‘in my presence’, no decision had been taken by the two parties over sharing the chief minister’s post.
The Sena had claimed that before the Lok Sabha polls, the two allies had decided to share the CM’s post in the next term for two-and-half-years each.
He called Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray for breaking the impasse many times, but ‘Uddhav-ji did not take my calls’, Fadnavis claimed.
The Shiv Sena’s ‘policy’ of not talking with the Bharatiya Janata Party but holding talks with the opposition Congress and Nationalist Congress Party was wrong, he said.
