Mumbai: The meeting between BJP president Amit Shah and former Maharash-tra chief minister Narayan Rane in New Delhi Wednesday night has triggered speculation, with the latter on Thursday claiming that Mr Shah offered him a Rajya Sabha berth.

“I have not yet decided about the offer,” Mr Rane said, even as nobody from the BJP came forward to corroborate his claim.

“Amit Shah asked me whether I was interested in a Rajya Sabha seat as the NDA candidate. Earlier, I was planning to go to Delhi (only) after 2019 (Lok Sabha election). I have not yet decided about Mr Shah’s offer. I have sought some time (from Shah) to think over it,” Mr Rane said.

“I met Mr Shah with Mr Fadnavis, where the chief minister told me he was facing some problems in inducting me into the state cabinet. I am hopeful that he will resolve them soon as I am not going to wait too long for my induction,” he said.
