New Delhi: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday night said he plans to carry out expansion of the state cabinet after Bihar assembly polls, sending a strong message that there was “no threat” to his year-old government.
Projecting a picture of “all is well” in the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance, the chief minister made a direct attack on Sena leader Sanjay Raut, the Executive Editor of party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, which has been highly critical of the BJP, and especially the chief minister.
With the Sena-BJP severing ties for the Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation polls, Fadnavis said the alliance will contest the prestigious BMC polls together. “There is no threat to my government. Cabinet expansion may take place after Bihar assembly polls. We will also contest the BMC polls in 2017 together as an alliance,” the chief minister said.
