Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday broke his silence over the sudden formation of the government with NCP leader Ajit Pawar. He revealed that Ajit had approached us to form the government with the consent of NCP chief Sharad Pawar. He also spoke of the support of 54 MLAs and had talked to many. At the same time, the BJP leader admitted that our bet has turned backwards.
Speaking to a private news channel, Fadnavis said that Ajit Pawar had said that we cannot run a government of three parties with Shiv Sena and Congress. Therefore, we should form a government together. Ajit had also said that the whole thing has been done with Sharad Pawar to form the government and he is allowed. The BJP leader claimed that Ajit had also made several NCP MLAs talk to him. We formed the government on this trust, but our move proved to be wrong.
On the proposal made by NCP chief Sharad Pawar on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that we will give an answer in this time. He said that BJP does not deal with anyone. If he had done, he would have agreed to a two-and-a-half-year formula with any party and would have formed our government. On the relationship with Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray, he said that personal relations with him are as they were before.
