Devendra Fadnavis

Mumbai, Nov 8 : Outgoing Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday reiterated that there was never any talk of sharing the post of the CM between the allies, Bharatiya Janata Party and the Shiv Sena.

“There was no talk anytime of sharing the post of CM for two-and-half years each between the two parties… (Union Minister) Nitin Gadkari and I spoke with the BJP President Amit Shah who also said there was no such commitment on this,” he told the media after submitting his resignation as CM to Governor B. S. Koshyari.

Fadnavis also asserted that the state will soon get a BJP government.

His statement could further intensify the political logjam over government formation in the state as the tenure of the assembly is set to expire on Saturday.

uddhav thackeray Shiv Sena

New Delhi, Nov 21 : After Shiv Sena youth leader Aditya Thackeray’s name did not find any takers for the Chief Minister’s post, the party proposed the names of Subhash Desai and Eknath Shinde but the NCP has rejected them and insisted that Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray takes over the top post, sources said.

Muttiah Muralitharan

Colombo, Nov 21 (IANS) Muttiah Muralitharan, the famous Sri Lanka off-spinner of yesteryear, is tipped as a governor of Northern Province following the presidential elections that gave a clear majority to Gotabaya Rajapaksa, a former defence minister of the island nation who in his term defeated Tamil militants headed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, media reports here said, citing anger in the Tamil minority community.

Murli, who scalped 800 Test wickets, is actually an Indian Tamil from Kandy. The 47-year-old had earlier thrown his weight behind Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who was on Monday sworn in as the Sri Lankan president a day after he was declared the winner in the closely fought election.

According to reports, Murali will likley join Rajapaksa presidency as the governor of the Northern province, which has a huge majority of Sri Lankan Tamils.

While no official confirmation is out so far, local Tamils are believed to oppose Murali’s appointement as the former cricketer had backed Gotabaya when he was the Defence Secretary between 2005 and 2015 and was accused of war crimes.

The Tamils, both from India and Sri Lanka, had raised their voice for his arrest and prosecution. However, Sri Lankan government had then rejected the demand for his arrest.
