MUMBAI: Devendra Fadnavis on Friday went on the offensive against the Shiv Sena and blamed the party for the impasse over government formation in Maharashtra after the assembly polls. Fadnavis, who resigned as the chief minister of the state and will continue as caretaker CM, accused the Shiv Sena of showing more interest in holding talks with the opposition Congress and the NCP rather than the BJP. “The Shiv Sena’s “policy” of not talking with the BJP but holding talks with the opposition Congress and NCP was wrong,” he said. “The day poll results came, Uddhav ji said all options open for government formation. That was shocking for us as people had given mandate for our alliance and in such circumstances it was a big question for us that why he said that all options are open for him,” he said. Fadnavis claimed that he called the Shiv Sena chief several times for breaking the impasse, but Uddhav Thackeray did not take his calls. Refuting the Shiv Sena’s claim, Fadnavis asserted that “in my presence”, no decision had been taken by the two parties over sharing the chief minister’s post. The Sena had claimed that before the Lok Sabha polls, the two allies had decided to share the CM’s post in the next term for two-and-half-years each. “I again want to make it clear that it was never decided that the CM’s post will be shared. There was never a decision on this issue. Even Amit Shah ji and Nitin Gadkari ji said this was never decided,” he said.
