‘I am not aspiring for the post of Chief Minister. I have never fought anyone for that. If my people do not want me to be the Chief Minister, if any MLA opposes me being the Chief Minister, tell me directly..I will resign at that moment. But you have to come to me and talk face to face. Why did you go to Surat? And let me tell you, I am not qualified to lead the Shiv Sena. I am ready to step down from that position.

That’s not what I wanted. If an MLA says no to me as Chief Minister, I will resign.
Has not deviated from the values of Hindutva. Hindutva and Shiv Sena are two sides of the same coin. Bala Saheb (Bal Thackeray) is no different from the Shiv Sena. He will still fight for Hindutva. All the MLAs are with Bala Saheb, ”Uddhav said.
Uddhav indirectly criticized Eknath Shinde. ‘Some MLAs of the party are missing. I do not want a Shiv Sena that is afraid of each other. Bala Saheb will fulfill the responsibility entrusted to him. Becoming the Chief Minister is not out of selfishness. The post of Chief Minister came to me by accident. It only approved the proposal to take the government forward. It was Sharad Pawar who nominated him as the Chief Minister and the Congress backed him, ”Uddhav said. Uddhav said that Sharad Pawar and Congress leader Kamal Nath had called him on the phone asking him to continue as chief minister.
