Senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has informed that the meeting has been held between Maharashtra CM Udhav Thackeray and NCP president Sharad Pawar and asserted that there are no differences between parties and state government is strong.
The meeting held on Monday for a one-and-a-half-hour and Raut said that there is no need to be concerned over the stability of the government. However, he does not reveal what had been discussed between two leaders.
In his tweet in Marathi, Raut said, “NCP chief Shared Pawar and chief minister Udhav Thackeray had a meeting for a one-and-a-half-hour and who are raising doubt on the stability of the state is only because of their grudge. This government is strong.”
Raut claimed that centre and BJP are conspiring to make government unstable by imposing presidential rule.
Earlier on Monday, Pawar had met with governor BS Koshyari and Raut told that the purpose of the meeting was not political and took place after governor’s invitation. However, the motive behind the meeting is the backdrop of strained relations between the Shiv Sena which heads the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and Raj Bhawan. NCP is one of the key constituents of MVA and Pawar is one of the key leaders of NCP who has complained that the governor is interfering in state government’s functioning.
Recently, former chief minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis also expressed concern over the inability of Udhav Thackeray government in tackling with covid-19 in State.
