Addressing a press conference after meeting Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, BJP's Maharashtra unit chief Chandrakant Patil said, "We will not form the government in the state."
"BJP, Shiv Sena, RPI, and other parties formed the coalition before the assembly polls. People have given the mandate to our alliance to form the government. And that is why the Governor invited us. But the Shiv Sena has not shown interest in forming the government. So now we will not form the government. We have conveyed this to the Governor," he said.
