BJP will form govt in Maharashtra in March, says Rane as Fadnavis, Pawar visit Delhi
Rane's statement came on a day when state BJP leaders Devendra Fadnavis and Chandrakant Patil as well as NCP chief Sharad Pawar and his party colleague Praful Patel were in the national capital, sparking speculation.
Speaking to reporters in Jaipur, Rane said, ''BJP will form government in Maharashtra in March.'' Asked to elaborate, he said toppling and forming governments is done in secrecy and it can not be discussed in public.
''BJP keeps making big predictions and they don't come true....Nobody believes BJP,'' he said.
''Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has already made it clear that the MVA will not just complete its five-year term but last for 25 years,'' said Malik.
Sources in the BJP and NCP played down the significance of the visits of their respective leaders to the national capital at the same time.
Pawar traveled to Delhi to attend a meeting of the parliamentary standing committee on defense and his schedule had been planned a week ago, an NCP source said.
The BJP should stop giving such deadlines, said Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut.
''It is making itself a laughing stock,'' the Rajya Sabha member said.
