New Delhi, Dec 02: Former Maharashtra chief minister, Devendra Fadnavis has denied the allegation that he became the chief minister for 80 hours to transfer funds back to the Centre.

Fadnavis while reacting to the remark said that he had not taken any such major policy decision. The allegations are false, he also said.

A CM has access to Rs 40,000 crore funds from the Centre. Fadnavis knew if the NCP-Congress-Shiv Sena government comes to power, the funds would be misused. Hence it was decided that there must be drama and Fadnavis became the CM. In 15 hours, he moved the funds back to the Centre, Hegde also said according to a report by news agency ANI.

Last week Fadnavis resigned as CM after his government lost majority following Dy CM Ajit Pawar quitting his post.

Ajit Pawar had supported BJP as leader of the 54-member NCP legislature party and with his resignation earlier in the day, the government has lost majority, he said.

"We don't have a majority after Ajit Pawar's resignation as Dy CM," Fadnavis said. "I will be submitting my resignation to the governor after this media briefing," he said.

Fadnavis said BJP will become the voice of the people as a responsible opposition. "We won't indulge in horse-trading," he added.

Asked if he thought Ajit Pawar extending support to the BJP was a strategy of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Fadnavis said, "Sharad Pawar will be able to comment on this issue".

"Ajit Pawar told me he was quitting due to personal reasons," Fadnavis said.
