Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut on Friday said that the Shiv Sena will get a full five-year term chief minister in the next two days. Raut made it clear that there would not be any rotational CM.
According to reports, Raut said that his party will get the Maharashtra CM’s post when the three-party alliance with Congress and NCP assumes power. He said, “This time for offers has ended.”
In a late-night development on Thursday, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and his MLA son Aaditya Thackeray met NCP President Sharad Pawar in over an hour-long meeting that took place at the NCP Supremo’s residence ‘Silver Oak’ in South Mumbai. The sudden meeting comes as the Shiv Sena continues its effort to form government in Maharashtra with the support of the NCP and the Congress.
Raut was also present in the meeting called by Thackeray’s with NCP chief Sharad Pawar after he arrived in Mumbai from New Delhi. However, no Congress leader was present at the meeting.
According to sources, the three parties are likely to make a formal announcement today about joining hands to take a shot at power in the state.
