New government, alliance will be formed in Maha: Arvind Sawant
Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant on Monday accused the BJP of backing out of its 50:50 formula promise to his party, which he said had put a question mark on the continuance of the BJP-Sena alliance.
Sawant, who put in his resignation papers earlier on Monday as Union Minister for Heavy Industries, said a "new government and alliance would be formed in the state".
"Continuing with the ministership is not correct in the light of new developments, that is why I have decided to resign," he reporters here.
Asked id it meant the Shiv Sena was quitting the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), he said: "One can understand the significance from my action."IANS
