No one spoke to me about going back as Maharashtra CM: Shinde

Sushilkumar Shinde scotched speculation about his going back as Chief Minister of Maharashtra.



New Delhi: Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Wednesday scotched speculation about his going back as Chief Minister of Maharashtra, saying no one has spoken to him on the subject but he was proud to be a `Maharashtrian`.

"I do not know myself. Nobody talked to me. At least somebody should have come and talked to me if I am going. But nobody talked to me," he said at a press conference here.

Shinde was replying to a question on speculation that he was going to swap the responsibility with Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.

Asked if such an offer comes to him what would be his stand, the former Chief Minister of the state said "I have not been asked, so how can I say? It is a hypothetical question".

"I belong to the state. I born and brought up there. My whole career is from Maharashtra and I am proud of Maharashtra," he said.

71-year-old Shinde was Maharashtra Chief Minister from January 2003 to October 2004.
