The CM’s remarks came at a time when the BJP is walking the tightrope to bear with the Shiv Sena.
Mumbai: Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday caused a flutter when he said that it is a fact in state politics that nobody remained CM for a long time.
“No person can remain as chief minister for a longer period... This is the history of politics in Maharashtra,” Mr Fadnavis said on the sidelines of an event in a lighter vein. He was speaking at a function to inaugurate a private hospital in a Mumbai suburb.
“I performed the ground-breaking ceremony of this hospital and today I inaugurated it. This is a rare occasion.
I don't known whether the construction of the hospital took place at a greater speed or I remained as a chief minister for long,” Mr Fadnavis said.
The CM’s remarks came at a time when the BJP is walking the tightrope to bear with the Shiv Sena, the recalcitrant constituent of the BJP-led NDA government, which is playing the politics of oneupmanship in the upcoming bypolls.
