Dwelling Minister Amit Shah on Sunday stated he didn’t promise Shiv Sena – then BJP’s ally – to share the chief minister’s put up if the alliance retained energy in Maharashtra after the 2019 meeting election. Shiv Sena, which broke ties with the BJP quickly after the election to kind authorities with the Nationalist Congress Occasion (NCP) and Congress, shot again, saying what took Mr Shah over a 12 months to come back out along with his model on the matter.
