Union Home Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President, Amit Shah on Wednesday finally broke his silence on the ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra and slammed Shiv Sena while stating that his party always maintained that Devendra Fadnavis will be the Chief Minister. 

Since the declaration of assembly election results in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena and BJP has been in a tussle over power-sharing. Shiv Sena alleged that BJP promised them the CM post but is not keeping its word. 

Before elections, the Prime Minister and I said many times in public that if our alliance (BJP and Shiv Sena) wins, Devendra Fadnavis will be the CM. No one objected back then. Now they (Shiv Sena) have come up with new demand which are not acceptable to us,” said Amit Shah while talking to the media.

Speaking about the imposition of President’s rule, Amit Shah also hit out at the opposition for holding the central government responsible for President’s rule in Maharashtra saying that no state has got this much time for government formation. 

Before this, no state was given so much time. 18 days were given and no party was able to form government in Maharashtra despite Governor’s invitation. Even if today any party has the numbers it can approach the Governor to stake claim,” said Amit Shah. 

Taking a dig at senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal, Shah said that the Governor has not denied a chance to anyone to form the government and a learned lawyer like Kapil Sibal is making childish arguments.
