Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s remark that ‘Maharashtra government is on notice period’ didn’t go down well with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis countered it by terming Raut as non serious leader.
“Our government will complete its five-year term. No one can bring it down,” Fadnavis said. “Those who think are giving any ultimatum, must be living in their dreams. No one takes them seriously. Neither in their own party (Shiv Sena) nor us.”
Fadnavis made this statement during an interaction with media persons in Worli on Monday evening.
Referring to Sena president Uddhav Thackeray’s statement on alliance, Raut on Monday had said that Thackeray had announced that they won’t have a tie-up with any political party making it clear that Sena would be contesting civic polls solo.
“At this point of time I would only say that the Fadnavis government is on notice,” Raut had said.
Fadnavis, however, is confident that the BJP, which is also contesting the civic polls on its own, will emerge as the single largest party. Replying to a question related to post-poll alliance, he said, “We will get full majority and will not need any support after the BMC elections.”
