At a conference of BJP workers in Palghar, adjoining Mumbai, he said, ‘Uddhav Thackeray had pledged to his father Bala Saheb Thackeray that he would sit on the Shiv Sena Chief Minister’s chair in the state.

DEVENDRA FADNAVIS SAID THAT NOW THE GOVERNMENT IN MAHARASHTRA NOT GET INSTRUCTIONS FROM MATOSHRI
Fadnavis, without naming, said in a gesture that now the government in Maharashtra does not get instructions from Matoshri (Thackeray Niwas) but orders come from Delhi’s ‘Matoshri’. He said that Bala Saheb’s soul would be sad today.
SHIV SENA ACCUSED OF BETRAYAL
Devendra Fadnavis accused the Shiv Sena of betrayal, saying that the people of the state had given the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance a majority to form the government. But Shiv Sena turned it down and formed a government with others.
Fadnavis said that Shiv Sena also cheated farmers after coming to the state government. All farmers were promised a full loan waiver. But some farmers were given amnesty of a fixed amount.
SHIV SAINIK ANGRY OVER PAWAR’S INTERFERENCE IN MAHARASHTRA GOVERNMENT
Shiv Sainiks are angry with the intervention of NCP chief Sharad Pawar in the Maharashtra government. They have started expressing their displeasure openly. A month after the formation of the government, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had expanded the cabinet, after which voices of resentment began to rise everywhere.
It is a problem for Uddhav, especially to convince angry MLAs of Shiv Sena. It is reported that these MLAs have sought an appointment with Uddhav. Sources say that Sharad Pawar’s intervention in the cabinet expansion particularly angered Shiv Sainiks.
There is also resentment among them that Pawar, with his manipulative power, gave important portfolios to NCP leaders. The slogan of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has already surfaced. Now Pratap Sarnaik, Bhaskar Jadhav and Bhavna Gawli are also speaking openly.
