Former Maharashtra CM Narayan Rane floats new political party, Maharashtra Swabhiman

Former Maharashtra CM Narayan Rane Forms New Party After Leaving Congress

"Once I get a proposal from the party, we will think of an alliance", he said, apparently referring to the BJP.

Senior BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari and Chandrakant Patil - number two in state Cabinet -had been lobbying for Rane's induction.

News reports said the arrangement was reportedly finalised after Rane's recent meeting with BJP President Amit Shah.

As expected, the Shiv Sena attacked the BJP-led government at the Centre and as expected stopped short of announcing that it were going to pull out of the BJP government in Maharashtra. He also claimed he had offers from all main political parties in the state after his resignation from the Congress. Rane indirectly pointed to his future allies and opponents by targeting the Sena and defending the BJP on various counts, including supporting the bullet train project.

Asked if he aspires to become the Chief Minister, he said, "I still have an ambition to become the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. I will go." But he ducked the question on the ministry promised to him by the BJP.

Defending the bullet train project amid opposition after the Elphinstone stampede, he said, "I will never oppose any development project".

Narayan Rane was booted out of the Shiv Sena by its chief Bal Thackeray in 2005 for accusing the Sena founder of "blind love for his son", a reference to Uddhav Thackeray who now heads the Shiv Sena. It is due to his leadership that the party has been widely ridiculed. Rane showed a glimpse of that strategy during the press conference as he criticized Uddhav Thackeray's Dusserrah speech on Saturday. They didn't appreciate whatever was being said. Using others to weaken the Sena is BJP's plan.

Shiv Sena has been critical of government decisions for a long time now. "I'll wait for official confirmation on Mr. Rane joining the NDA before commenting".

Mr Rane quit the Congress last week after the party allegedly failed to keep its promise of making him the Chief Minister. "Let's see what their future is".
