Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday insisted that he promised the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) then ally Shiv Sena (Shiv Sena) to win the Maharashtra Assembly elections in 2019 and share the chief minister’s post if he comes to power. did. He criticized the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray as a liar, criticizing Maha Vikas Aghadi (Maha Vikas Aghadi, MVA). Shah also rejected Shiv Sena’s claim that he was secretly given this assurance. Explain that after the results of the assembly elections in the state, Shiv Sena left the BJP and joined hands with NCP and Congress.
On Shah’s statement, Shiv Sena wondered why it took more than a year for the BJP leader to give a statement on the most discussed topic of the state. After inaugurating a private medical college at Kankavali in Sindhudurg district, the former BJP president said, “I do not make promises in closed quarters.” Whatever I do, I do it openly. I do not do politics in closed rooms. He said that the MVA government of Maharashtra is a three-wheeler auto-rickshaw and all its wheels are in different directions. He said, it is an unholy alliance formed by betraying the people’s mandate, whereas the mandate was for the BJP-Shiv Sena (coalition) government headed by Devendra Fadnavis.
Shiv Sena has been attacking BJP for the post of CM
Let us tell you that after the Maharashtra Assembly elections in 2019, Shiv Sena broke ties with its long-time ally BJP for the post of Chief Minister. Uddhav Thackeray then claimed that the then BJP president Amit Shah had promised to share the post of chief minister in his Matoshree bungalow in Mumbai by both parties, but the saffron party later retracted. Shah said his party respects his promises. They said, we do not lie white. We are people who honor the promise. In Bihar, we had said that even if BJP gets more seats, Nitish Kumar will remain the Chief Minister.
Attack on Shiv Sena under the pretext of Nitish
Amit Shah said that BJP got more seats than JDU and Nitish Kumar said that BJP should become the Chief Minister, but, we said that BJP has already said that he (Nitish Kumar) will become the Chief Minister. Targeting Thackeray, Shah said that the Shiv Sena president held rallies with him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi before the Maharashtra assembly elections. He said that we sought votes for Fadnavis-led BJP-Shiv Sena alliance. Why didn’t you say it at that time? Why did you vote in the name of Modiji?
Shiv Sena retaliated
Reversing the Home Minister’s remarks, Shiv Sena leader and former Union Minister Arvind Sawant said that the truth is that it took a year and a half for Shah to say that he had not made any promises and this casts doubt on his statement. He said that Uddhav Thackeray spoke on this (promise) on several occasions – even in the state assembly but Shah remained silent. After the assembly election results, Shah went to discuss forming a government in Haryana, but he remained silent on the developments in Maharashtra.
