Mumbai, Nov 13: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray here on Tuesday stated that since there are "ideological differences" between his party and the Congress and NCP hence time will be needed to iron out the creases.
Talking to the mediapersons, Mr Thackeray seated along with his 29-year-old son Aaditya, asserted that Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari alloted them extremely less time to prove majority for forming the new government.He averred that it was on Monday that he contacted the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for the first time since the crisis over forming the new government started after October 24 poll results.
Speaking further, he said given the above fact, it's clear that the BJP was lying all along that Sena was covertly talking with the Congress and NCP for installing the government. Being the second-largest party, Sena was invited to form the government but it requested a timeframe of 48 hours for "fulfilment of procedures", which was denied by the Governor. (UNI)
