Chandrakant Patil, the leader of the BJP in Maharashtra, claims that his party is unrelated to the Shiv Sena turmoil.

Chandrakant Patil, the leader of the Maharashtra branch of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), denied accusations that his group was implicated in the ongoing conflict in Shiv Sena on Friday.Patil said that his organisation did not play a role in the state's escalating economic crisis.However, he admitted that Devendra Fadnavis, the leader of opposition in the assembly, traveled to Delhi on Thursday for some work, without giving details about him.Patils' remarks came a day after BJP chief Sharad Pawar said that the BJP has been involved in the Uddhav Thackeray-led government's crisis.

Patil said to reporters in Kolhapur, his hometown, that the BJP has nothing to do with the latest internal bickering in Shiv Sena or in the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) (comprising Sena, NCP, and Congress).On Thursday afternoon, I lunched with Devendra Fadnavis in Mumbai, and then went to New Delhi for a bit of work.Fadnavis told me that certain things are going on during our chat.But if it had been anything significant, he would have certainly boosted my confidence, he said.

In a Guwahati hotel, Shinde is presently camping with 37 Sena rebel MLAs and nine independents.Patil said in a speech by Sharad Pawar that the BJP is playing a role in the Shindes rebellion, Pawar and Senas Sanjay Raut violate their right to freedom of expression excessively.I am not even a fan of the daily newspapers, so I am not aware of what's going on in Sena.Patil said he has friends from every political party when asked about reports that Mumbai-based BJP functionary Mohit Kamboj was in Guwahati with rebel Sena leaders.

I have no idea where he is.
