New Delhi: After Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, the RSS had issued a statement saying that the tag of ‘former CM’ will not be attached for a long time on Devendra Fadnavis.
Speaking at an event on Friday, RSS General Secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi said, “In a democracy, governments hold a big share of power, and by it, governments are responsible for social welfare. I want to say that Devendra Fadnavis ji’s destiny will not keep him as leader of opposition forever. Also, the tag of former CM is a short-lived tag for him. But it is a democracy so in a democracy things change.”
In the Maharashtra Assembly elections, the BJP had won with 105 seats and its ally Shiv Sena won 56 seats. However both the parties parted ways after differences over the CM post and Sena joined hands with Congress and NCP.
Meanwhile, Thackeray has made his stand clear on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) after meeting PM Modi and said, ” I had a good decision with the Prime Minister over issues concerning Maharashtra. I also discussed the CAA, NPR and NRC with the Prime Minister. No one needs to fear about the CAA. The NPR is not going to throw anyone out of the country.”
