• Can't speak to those who lie: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at BJP

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Friday hit hard on its ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for trying to prove him a liar saying that the power-sharing deal was finalised before Union Home Minister Amit Shah. 

While addressing the media at Sena Bhavan in Dadar, Uddhav Thackeray maintained that the 50-50 power-sharing formula was finalised during his talks with Amit Shah before the Lok Sabha elections this year. 

Expressing his disappointment, Thackeray accused BJP of lying and said that he did not expect this. On the question of talks with the BJP to end the deadlock over government formation, Uddhav Thackeray said that he can’t speak to those who lie.

Devendra Fadnaivs accused me of lying. We have never been known to lie. Amit Shah and company came to me, I did not go to them,” said Uddhav Thackeray insisting that 50-50 power-sharing formula including rotational Chief Ministership was fixed with the BJP.

Blaming BJP of the political deadlock in Maharashtra, Thackeray said that he won’t talk to those who call him a liar and the people of Maharashtra know that Bal Thackeray’s son will never lie. 

Devendra Fadnavis on Friday resigned from his post as Maharashtra CM. In his press conference earlier today, Devendra Fadnavis accused Shiv Sena of making unfair commentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the last five years. 

Reacting to this, Uddhav Thackeray said that in the last 10-15 days, he has said nothing against PM Modi while reminding the BJP of remarks made by Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) chief Dushyant Chautala. 

During his presser, while questioning BJP’s decision to join hands with JJP in Haryana, Thackeray played a clip where Dushyant Chautala can be heard lashing out at PM Modi and Amit Shah saying that “these two Gujaratis will teach us nationalism now.”

Thackeray further said that BJP earlier indulged in “horse-trading” of MLAs to form government in Karnataka. The Shiv Sena added that he has the right to keep his MLAs wherever he wants. This comes after Sena had shifted its MLAs to Rangsharda Hotel in Bandra.

While interacting with the media, Uddhav Thackeray said that he will install a Shiv Sena Chief Minister in Maharashtra with or without the help of BJP.

I had promised my later father Bal Thackeray that Maharashtra will get a Sena Chief Minister and I will fulfil my promise with or without any BJP. I don’t need Devendra Fadnavis or Amit Shah for this,” said Uddhav Thackeray.
