Mumbai: Maharashtra's new CM Eknath Shinde is heaping praise on the BJP for forming a new government. CM Shinde says that for Hindutva, the BJP has supported the Shiv Sena (Shinde faction). At the same time, he also informed that PM Narendra Modi has assured full support. Let us know that in the majority test held in the Maharashtra Assembly on Monday, 164 votes were cast in favour of the Shinde government.
Speaking to the media, CM Shinde has also raised questions about the way the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government works. He has said that Shiv Sena MLAs were finding it difficult to work under the MVA regime and the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) involved were trying to gain political ground. CM Shinde has said, "There was a perception among the public, everyone was speculating that the BJP could do anything for power. But they have shown to the people that these 50 people have favoured the ideology of Hindutva and their agenda is that of development and Hindutva and they should be supported. They supported us even after having more number, more MLAs. He supported us for the CM's post.''
CM Shinde further said that PM Narendra Modi has asked him to take the state forward in the direction of development. He said, "That's a big deal. The Central Government is with us. We have not done anything illegal. Before the elections, there was an alliance between the BJP and the Shiv Sena. We are aligning with that party itself.''
