Nobody unhappy in party over Ajit Pawar joining government: CM Shinde


Addressing the recent reports of discontent among Shiv Sena MLAs regarding NCP leader Ajit Pawar’s joining the Shinde-Fadnavis government, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde made it clear that his government has emerged stronger, adding that he has no plans of stepping down and termed it as “rumours”.
“It is all rumours…,” CM Shinde said. Speaking about the split in the NCP, Shinde said that the NCP should introspect on what is happening in their party.
“They (NCP) should introspect on what is happening in their party. They should look into their party, khud ka ghar toh toot gya hai (Their own house is broken now).” “Yesterday I also held a meeting with our MPs and MLAs and our government is getting stronger day by day,” he added. He further added, “Including three parties presently, our MLAs are more than 200. No leader is unhappy and all have faith. Our government is only getting stronger. We have a huge support of PM Modi and Amit Shah,” Maharashtra CM said.
CM Shinde had on Wednesday conducted a meeting of Shiv Sena MLAs at his official residence, Varsha, in Mumbai. Earlier on Wednesday, Maharashtra BJP president Chandrashekhar Bawankule also said that the Opposition parties are creating confusion regarding the Chief Ministership of Eknath Shinde but he will continue as the CM of the state.
