MUMBAI: Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Friday slammed ally BJP for trying `to prove him a liar’, claiming that it had agreed to share the chief minister’s post in Maharashtra during his talks with Amit Shah.
He would fulfill the promise made to his father, late Sena founder Bal Thackeray, to install a Shiv Sena chief minister in the State, and does not need Devendra Fadnavis or Shah for this, Uddhav Thackeray said.
Thackeray addressed the media soon after Chief Minister Fadnavis handed over his resignation to Maharashtra Governor, and was asked to continue as caretaker CM.
Reacting strongly to Fadnavis’s claim that there had been no agreement on sharing the chief minister’s post for two-and-half years, Thackeray again and again said that he was hurt that the BJP tried to portray him as a liar. (AGENCIES)
