The stability of the Mahavikas Aghadi government of three parties led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in Maharashtra is being discussed in the political corridors. Meanwhile, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut met at a five-star hotel in Mumbai. After the two leaders met, the market of speculation in the political corridors of Maharashtra became hot.
At the same time, Sanjay Raut's statement about this meeting has also been revealed. Raut said on Sunday, 'I met Devendra Fadnavis yesterday to discuss some issues. He is a former CM. Apart from this, he is the leader of the opposition in Maharashtra and is in charge of the BJP for the Bihar elections. There may be ideological differences, but we are not enemies. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is aware of our meeting.
According to the information received, the two leaders held talks between 1.30 pm and about three and a half hours. The two had lunch together. Shiv Sena-BJP leaders had no prior notice of this meeting.
BJP said - no need to make much meaning
After the meeting between the two leaders, the discussion has started about a political earthquake in the state. Regarding this meeting, Union Minister Raosaheb Davane Patil said that it does not need to make much sense. A few days ago I also met Raut and had tea together.
No political reference to meet: Shiv Sena
Significantly, Raut was in the news for his anti-BJP stance on the power-sharing formula after the assembly elections last year. Maharashtra BJP chief spokesperson Keshav Upadhyay said that the meeting had no political significance.
He tweeted, Raut had expressed his desire to interview Fadnavis for the (Shiv Sena mouthpiece) Saamana and that they met to discuss the same. The spokesman said, Fadnavis has told Raut that he will give him an interview after returning after campaigning in Bihar. There is no political reference to this visit.
Raut played an important role in forming government in Maharashtra
Explain that after the assembly elections in 2019, Sanjay Raut has played an important role in forming Mahavikas Aghadi government in collaboration with Congress-NCP. Since Sanjay Raut has been continuously targeting Devendra Fadnavis in the editorial of the mouthpiece of Shiv Sena, Raut's meeting with Fadnavis is being considered very important.
