Bibarud only: "I have never requested the post of Prime Minister," Eknath Shinde says

Maharashtra Prime Minister Enato Sinde, who came to power with the support of the BJP after a successful coup with former Prime Minister Uddhav Thacke at Shiv Sena last week, said his rebellion was in the former Mahabicas Agadi administration. He emphasized that he is beyond the ideological differences with his alliance partners. “I didn’t make this decision to become prime minister,” a 58-year-old woman told Bibarud in an exclusive interview, mostly prior to a formal majority test.

“I have never requested the post of Prime Minister. It was a matter of Hindutva’s ideology in Barasaheb (Thackeray). Party members were very angry with Mahabi Kas Agadi. MLA was also angry. . Internal problems of the coalition. ” He added that the BJP showed its “big heart” by offering him the post of Prime Minister.

“Everyone thought the BJP was helping us come to power in the state. People also expected them to become prime minister,” he said.

Mr Cinde also wiped out the air of Devendra Banhartis accepting the post of Deputy Prime Minister after saying he was not part of the government.

“I told him, and he said it was his duty to obey the party’s orders as he helped the party grow him from a normal worker to a tall leader, I gave him the best post (of the prime minister), “he said.
