“BJP, Shiv Sena, RPI, and other parties formed the coalition before the assembly polls. People have given the mandate to our alliance to form the government. And that is why the Governor invited us. But the Shiv Sena has not shown interest in forming the government. So now we will not form the government. We have conveyed this to the Governor,” he said.

“This mandate was to work together and if the Shiv Sena wants to disrespect the mandate and form the government with the Congress and the NCP, then they have our good wishes,” added Patil.

Maharashtra Governor Koshyari on Saturday had asked acting Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to “indicate the willingness and ability of his party to form the government in Maharashtra”.

The party’s core committee met twice today to discuss the Governor’s invitation to BJP to form the government in the state.

The term of state assembly ended yesterday. The BJP had remerged as the single largest party in the assembly polls winning 105 seats while the Shiv Sena bagged 56 seats.
