Don’t link RSS chief to Govt formation: Gadkari
   Date :08-Nov-2019
UNION Minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat should not be linked to the Government formation moves in Maharashtra. He also said that a decision will soon be taken on Government formation in the State, and since the BJP won more number of seats than the Sena, the Chief Minister will be from his party. Speaking to reporters here, the Lok Sabha member from Nagpur also ruled out his return to his home State to assume the top job.
“Devendra Fadnavis will head the new Government,” Gadkari said. To another query, he said, “RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat or the Sangh have no relation with all this. It won’t be appropriate to link the RSS chief to the goings on (over government formation).”
Amid the impasse over Government formation, farm activist Kishore Tiwari, who joined the Shiv Sena ahead of the Assembly polls, recently said Bhagwat should depute Gadkari to resolve the power-tussle between the BJP and the Sena. He said people were worried over the Sangh’s “silence” on the issue. Gadkari said the BJP and Shiv Sena have got people’s mandate to form the new Government and very soon a decision will be taken.
