Continuing Shiv Sena’s adamant stand of Chief Minister post in Maharashtra, its Sena leader Sanjay Raut has said that the party can form the government in Maharashtra without the BJP.
"The CM will be from Shiv Sena. If Uddhav Thackeray has said the CM will be from Sena. Take it in writing, it will be from Shiv Sena," party leader Sanjay Raut said in an interview with India Today TV.
Sanjay Raut also claimed that the Shiv Sena can get 2/3rd majority to form the government in Maharashtra.
"Those who don't have the majority should not dare to form the government. The process of government formation in Maharashtra should be as per negotiations prior to the alliance," Sanjay Raut said.
Raut added that even the public of Maharashtra wants a Shiv Sena CM. On offer from the BJP to give more cabinet ministers to Shiv Sena, Sanjay Raut said, "Our leaders and workers are not traders."
Meanwhile, Sena leader Sanjay Raut had on Thursday met Sharad Pawar in Mumbai, triggering speculations about the possible formation of an alternative government in the state.
