Speaking at his official residence ‘Varsha’ in south Mumbai late last night after another day of war of words with Sena, Fadnavis appeared unfazed and said, “We will complete our term.
“I am confident Sena will continue to be a part of the BJP-led government despite their recent postures and we will also contest the Mumbai municipal corporation election together.”
“We are two separate parties and there’s a difference between their thinking and working style. We fought against each other in last year’s Assembly polls but the mandate we got was against Congress-NCP,” Fadnavis said but not before adding, “had we got 20-22 seats more, we would have been the only party in power.”
“There will be agreement on some things and disagreement on some other items,” Fadnavis said. “There’s bound to be some bickering. But both the parties understand that this is bound to happen in a coalition government,” said Fadnavis, who a few hours earlier had launched a scathing attack on Sena at a civic poll rally in adjoining Thane district.
To a query on intense verbal duel between leaders of both the parties during campaign for Kalyan Dombivli and Kolhapur civic elections scheduled tomorrow, Fadnavis said “these are local elections and won’t have any bearing on state politics.”
