Reportedly Uddhav, stating that he did not intend to end the alliance with the bjp but only wanted the implementation of what was "agreed upon" between the two parties before the lok sabha polls, said that the amit shah led party should only call him up if there was a consensus on a rotational chief minister's post.
Meanwhile the Sena chief was quoted by saying, "We will hold discussions with bjp provided they agree to what was decided during the Lok Sabha polls. They can call me up if they decide to give us the chief minister’s post for two and a half years, otherwise don’t call me up. Our party has been borne out of self-respect. We don’t want to corner BJP. The chief minister's statement was entirely inappropriate and if he is trying to prove that I was lying, then this is not appropriate. If bjp does not want to keep its word as decided, then what is the point in holding a discussion."
Moreover after the meeting at Uddhav's residence Matoshree in Bandra, all the legislators were reportedly shifted to a hotel in the same area. Reportedly, this was after speculation that a faction of the party could break away to support the BJP. Perhaps Raut downplayed the move saying that legislators from outside the city had been accommodated in Rangsharda Hotel. "Not all legislators have homes in Mumbai. So, the party has decided to ensure they get facilities under one roof."
