New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah has finally broken his silence over the ongoing power tussle in Maharashtra, which is currently under President's rule.
In a statement issued by the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday, the Union Home Minister called the imposition of Presidents rule as "constitutional" and "logical" and hit out at the opposition which has been raising the pitch on the issue.
Hitting out at the Sena without naming it, Amit Shah said that he or the BJP didn't believe in making private discussions public.
"It is not the tradition of the BJP to make open what has occurred in the room, because there is dignity in public life. But if the opposition parties think that they will get public sympathy by creating such kind of confusion, they have no idea about the understanding capabilities of Indians," Amit Shah said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party President also broke his silence on the issue of sharing the Chief Minister's post, which has derailed the Sena-BJP alliance.
Amit Shah said that both he and PM Narendra Modi in numerous rallies had made it clear that if the saffron alliance came to power, Devendra Fadnavis would be it's Chief Minister. "No one questioned it back then," he said.
Rubbishing charges of favouring the Bharatiya Janata Party, Shah said that no political party has been able to garner support to stake claim to form the government in Maharashtra.
He reminded that any formation can approach the Governor even now if they think they have the numbers. Amit Shah also hit out at its opponents for suggesting that the Governor was acting on the behest of Bharatiya Janata Party, calling the claim detrimental to democratic ethos.
Shiv Sena has been claiming that the BJP went back on its promise of 50-50 power sharing, which included sharing the Chief Minister's post as well. The Shiv Sena has also accused the BJP of being a 'liar'.
