BJP is arrogant, says Shiv sena

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has blamed BJP of arrogance for their refusal to form government in Maharashtra and called it an insult to the people of the state.

Addressing a press conference, Raut said that the BJP is willing to sit in the Opposition but they are reluctant to follow the 50-50 formula, to which they had agreed before the election. 'It is BJP's arrogance that they are refusing to form govt in Maharashtra. It is an insult to the people of Maharashtra. They are willing to sit in opposition, but they are reluctant to follow the 50-50 formula, for which they agreed before polls,' said Raut.

Taking a jibe at the BJP, Raut also said that the Shiv Sena isn't responsible for the current political situation in Maharashtra. He questioned any further ties with the BJP saying, 'BJP didn't fulfill its promise, why will there be any ties now?'
