After the Lok Sabha polls, the BJP leaders had started singing a different tune saying that the CM would be from their party only.
Mumbai: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena are continuing to spar over the chief minister’s post. Barely a day after senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar claimed that the next chief minister of the state would be from the BJP, the Sena hit back saying that it had already been decided to share the top post for two-and-a-half years, each, by the top brass of both parties.
Yuva Sena leader Varun Sardesai Tuesday tweeted, “Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and BJP president Amit Shah have decided that the Maha CM’s post will be 2.5 years’ each. The people who weren’t present for the negotiations, should not spoil the alliance for their personal gains.”
Mr Sardesai’s comments come on the back of Mr Mungantiwar’s claims that the next CM will be from the BJP only and there was no discontentment on the part of the BJP or Sena about this.
After the BJP and Sena decided to bury the hatchet and fight the Lok Sabha polls together, Mr Thackeray had announced before his party workers that both parties had agreed to share power and the CM’s post after the Assembly polls.
However, after the Lok Sabha polls, the BJP leaders had started singing a different tune saying that the CM would be from their party only.
