Maharashtra CM-designate Eknath Shinde speaking at the joint presser with BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis: "A total of 50 MLAs are with us, including 40 MLAs from Shiv Sena. We have fought this battle so far with their help. I will not let even a scratch mar the trust that these 50 people have placed in me, let alone break that trust. 

"We went to former CM Thackeray with our constituency's grievances and  development work. We advised him on the need for improvement as we started realizing that it would be difficult for us to win the next elections. We demanded a natural alliance with the BJP.

"BJP has 120 MLAs, but despite that Devendra Fadnavis did not take the post of CM. I express my gratitude to him along with PM Modi, Amit Shah and other BJP leaders that they showed generosity and made Balasaheb's Sainik (party-worker) the CM of the state."

"When 50 MLAs take a decision, it calls for introspection," he said, without naming Uddhav Thackeray.

Just goes to show that if a self-professed chaiwallah can be PM, a former auto driver can be a CM.
