Earlier in the day, he slammed the BJP saying that if the party was not ready to fulfil its promise of sharing the chief minister’s post in the state, then there was no reason to continue with the alliance.
He also said that the BJP “insulted” mandate of the people by not respecting the “50:50” formula which,as per him was decided by the two parties before the Lok Sabha elections.
He also maintained that if BJP could join hands with People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir to form a government, then why could the Sena not do so with the NCP and Congress in Maharashtra.
