'Approach Maharashtra Governor if you have numbers': Amit Shah to opposition parties

NEW DELHI: After weeks of silence, BJP chief Amit Shah finally reacted to the political stalemate in Maharashtra by hitting out Shiv Sena, the party's estranged Maharashtra ally. He made it clear that Shiv Sena's demands were not acceptable to his party. Amit Shah also slammed the opposition parties for targeting governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.

"Before elections Prime Minister and I said many times in public that if our alliance wins then Devendra Fadnavis will be the chief minister, but no one objected back then. Now they have come up with new demands which are not acceptable to us," the BJP chief said.

After the Maharashtra assembly election results, Shiv Sena broke its pre-poll alliance with the BJP demanding 50:50 share in power and chief minister's post on rotational basis. Shiv Sena had claimed that the two parties had agreed to equal sharing of power before the elections. However, the BJP had strongly rejected this claim.

"Before this, in no state was so much time given,18 days were given. Governor invited parties only after assembly tenure ended. Neither Shiv Sena nor the Congress-NCP staked claim and neither we. Even if today any party has numbers it can approach Governor," the BJP chief said.
