Don’t link RSS chief to Maharashtra govt formation: Nitin Gadkari

NAGPUR: Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat shouldn't be linked to the government formation moves in Maharashtra.
Speaking to reporters here, the BJP leader also ruled out his returning to the state to assume the top job.
"Devendra Fadnavis will head the new government," he said, adding a decision will be taken soon to resolve the impasse over government formation in his home state.
"It won't be appropriate to link the RSS chief to the goings on (over government formation)," he said.
The BJP and Shiv Sena have got people's mandate to form the new government, Gadkari said.
'Not returning' to state politics
Gadkari ruled out any possibility of his returning to state politics.
"I am in Delhi… There is no question of my returning to state politics. The political crisis in the state will be resolved soon," Gadkari said, ending all speculation of his being a contender for the post of a consensus chief minister to defuse the state political deadlock over government formation.
