Mumbai: With the BJP and its junior partner Shiv Sena (SS) grappling to reach a final settlement regarding the formation of government in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday expressed dismay over chief minister Devendra Fadanavis' statement that no '50-50' formula had been reached between the two allies.
"I do not know what the chief minister has said. If he is saying that the '50-50 formula' was never discussed, then I think we need to change the definition of the truth. What was discussed, regarding the issue the chief minister is talking about, is known by all. The media was there," Raut told ANI.
Chief minister Fadnavis today said the BJP national president Amit Shah had not given any confirmation about giving the chief minister's post to Shiv Sena. However, he asserted the BJP will be leading a stable government with the Shiv Sena's support for the next five years.
"The chief minister himself had uttered the '50-50 formula'. Uddhav Ji had spoken about it too. It happened before Amit Shah. I want to pay my obeisance to him if now he is saying that nothing had happened. He is denying what he had said before the camera," added Raut.
