KCR-Uddhav-Pawar meet: Such unity experiments have failed in the past, says Fadnavis

Speaking to reporters in Aurangabad, Fadnavis said it was not new for chief ministers of states to meet in this manner, adding that Rao had met him as well when he was CM of Maharashtra between 2014 and 2019.

Aurangabad: A day after Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao met his Maharashtra counterpart Uddhav Thackeray and NCP supremo Sharad Pawar in Mumbai to get parties to unite against the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, Maharashtra BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said such experiments had been carried out in the past and had failed.

Speaking to reporters in Aurangabad, Fadnavis said it was not new for chief ministers of states to meet in this manner, adding that Rao had met him as well when he was CM of Maharashtra between 2014 and 2019.

“Earlier too, these leaders had come together (to take on the BJP) ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. However, nothing came out of it. Such experiments (of unity of non-BJP parties) had been done in the past in several states but there was no effect,” Fadnavis said.

The BJP leader went to claim that his party would soon be the leading one in Telangana, currently ruled by Rao’s TRS.

“In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP won four seats in Telangana. Our party will be number one in that state in the coming period,” Fadnavis asserted.

Replying to a query on action by the Mumbai civic body against Narayan Rane in connection with his bungalow, Fadnavis said the state government was indulging in “revenge politics” against Rane and Kirit Somaiya, a former LS MP who has been routinely making corruption allegations against Shiv Sena leaders and state ministers.
