# I again want to make it clear that it was never decided that for 2.5 years each the CM post will be shared. There was never a decision on this issue. Even Amit Shah ji and Nitin Gadkari ji said this was never decided: Fadnavis
# Unfortunately,day when results came,Uddhav ji said all options open for Govt formation.That was shocking for us as people had given mandate for alliance and in such circumstances it was a big question for us that why he said all options are open for him: Fadnavis
# I have tendered my resignation to the Governor and he has accepted it: Fadnavis
# I have a very close relationship with Uddhav ji Thackeray and it will continue, I called him up many times but he has not responded yet: Fadnavis
# Balasaheb Thackeray is respected by all of us, in fact we even never said anything against Uddhav ji Thackeray, but in past 5 years and especially last 10 days the kind of statements which were made against our top leadership including Modi ji, were not tolerable: Fadnavis
