Shiv Sena senior leader Sanjay Raut spoke to the media after returning from the hospital. The Shiv Sena leader slammed the BJP for the current situation of Maharashtra and said the BJP refuted its promises. The leader alleged there is no 'morality' left in BJP's commitments anymore.
During alliance, Uddhav had made it clear that there will be 50-50 sharing of power. Why didnt they (BJP) say anything then. Now after the elections, there is no morality left in their commitments. I never heard in any of Amit Shah’s rally where he said Devendra Fadnavis will be the CM. However, I heard PM Modi’s comment that Devendra will be the CM.
Sanjay Raut also slammed Union Home Minister Amit Shah and said, is necessary to introspect what was discussed in the closed-door between Uddhav Thackeray and Amit Shah
This is about the future of Maharashtra. The Shiv Sena has never traded in politics. This is Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s Maharashtra. We work on the principles of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. If the talks decided were taken to PM Modi, maybe this situation wouldn’t have arisen. The talks took place in the late Balasaheb Thackeray’s room, that room is like a temple. If someone refutes the talks made in that room, then that’s an insult to that temple of Balasaheb Thackeray and Maharashtra. It is necessary to introspect what was discussed in the closed-door. We respect Modi more than the BJP people do.
President Ram Nath Kovind, on November 12, accepted the Maharashtra Governor's recommendation and implemented President's rule in the state after the BJP refused to stake a government in the state. The Governor also invited the Shiv Sena to stake claim however, they could not prove the majority in time. Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) confirmed that now Maharashtra assembly is under suspended animation after the President officially signed the order. If no party stakes claim within six months, fresh elections will be held in the state.
