Nitin Gadkari rules out return to Maha politics, says Fadnavis will be CM
Few Hours after Sanjay Raut, who is the leader of the Shiv Sena party refused the reports that Nitin Gadkari will be appointed as the CM as the wish of the party, the Union minister Nitin Gadkari said not to CM seat and said he will not return to Maharashtra politics and coined the name of CM Devendra Fadnavis for the CM position.
As the statement came stating that, 'Devendra Fadnavis will head the new government, adding a decision will be taken soon to resolve the impasse over government formation in his home state. It won't be appropriate to link the RSS chief to the goings on (over government formation). The senior BJP leader is likely to meet with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in Nagpur.'
Meanwhile, Nitin Gadkari in an interview said, 'I am in Delhi... There is no question of my returning to state politics. The political crisis in the state will be resolved soon.'
However, Gadkari's statement brought a full stop to all rumors of him being a contender for the post of a consensus chief minister to defuse the state political impasse over government formation.
