Devendra Fadnavis on Friday resigned as chief minister of Maharashtra . At a press briefing after submitting his resignation to Governor BS Koshyari at the Raj Bhawan in Mumbai, Fadnavis said there was no agreement between the two allies on a seat-sharing agreement ahead of the Assembly polls in the state.
Fadnavis was speaking to reporters, Sena leader Sanjay Raut said a 50-50 agreement on seat sharing had been in place before, stating his party can form the government and install a Sena chief minister if it wants.
Fadnavis repeatedly said that the BJP was “Hurt” by the Sena’s comments aimed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah regarding the Pre-Poll seat sharing alliance.
Fadnavis’ resignation came after the Sena remained firm over its demand for sharing the chief minister’s post and asked the BJP not to misuse the provision of “caretaker” government to remain in power in the state. The term of the existing Assembly is due to end on November 9.
