Shedding their ideologies, three parties are forming the government.””Leaving an ideology, leaving the pre-poll alliance when these three parties were getting together…everybody was clapping. Shah stressed that the mandate in the state is with the BJP.”All I want to ask — Who broke the mandate? We didn’t. We did neither camp our MLAs nor made them hostage in hotels. Those who made camps didn’t do anything wrong? Those who broke alliances to form the government are not wrong? We are at the receiving end. The mandate is with us. We are not forming the government … It is our fault,” he said taking a jibe at his critics. The Home Minister was answering questions asked by Arnab Goswami at the Summit organized by Republic TV at New Delhi. “So, leaving behind ideologies and principles just to keep the BJP out of power anyway, and forming the government and then presenting it as the failure of the BJP … I think the people of the country don’t get swayed by such propaganda. The people know what has happened and we have good communication with the people of the country,” said Amit Shah .Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has been unanimously elected as the leader of the three-party — Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP — alliance.BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis submitted his resignation on Tuesday as Chief Minister to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari after “the BJP fell short of the required number of MLAs to win the scheduled floor test.”Thackeray accompanied by his wife Rashmi called Governor Koshyari on Wednesday morning.
