Every politician desires to be a chief minister. However the resolution which the get together and Mr Pawar take is closing for us. All need to be chief minister. Everybody who has labored (in politics) so long as I’ve (have to be wanting the submit). My voters, too, have to be wanting me to be a chief minister.”
“I need to be chief minister, however the scenario and the quantity (of MLAs) are components. We’ve got 54 MLAs (in a home of 288). I do not assume it’s potential to turn out to be chief minister with 54 MLAs,” he had stated.
