Shiv Sena on Monday threatened to pull out from the Maharashtra government, saying that the party is not ready to share the blame for unprecedented price rise and the problem of farmers as they are not responsible for it.
After party meeting, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said soon they will decide whether to continue in government or withdraw the support.
“Whether we will stay in Govt or withdraw, this will be decided soon,” Sanjay Raut said.
The party has also slammed union minister Alphons Kannanthanam for his remarks on fuel price hike in its mouthpiece, Saamana.
