As the heat picked up further in Maharashtra over government formation, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday headed to Nagpur to meet with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

Amid the BJP-Shiv Sena deadlock, Gadkari said Devendra Fadnavis will be the Chief Minister of the State, while refuting reports of him returning to Maharashtra politics. Gadkari said he will continue to work in Delhi at the Centre.

The BJP and Shiv Sena had fought the state polls in an alliance but have failed to reach a consensus over the CM's post and distribution of portfolios. The BJP won 105 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra assembly, and Sena got 56. The Sena remains adamant on a '50:50' deal which it says was agreed upon with the BJP much before the electioneering began.
