MUMBAI: Chief minister

Uddhav Thackeray

will speak at the ‘right time’ on the allegations against his government,

Shiv Sena MP

Sanjay Raut said on Wednesday. Calling governor BS Koshyari a ‘BJP family member’, he said, “So, opposition leader Devendra

Fadnavis

and other leaders meeting with the governor was like a family gathering."
Speaking on Fadnavis’s allegations that Thackeray chose not to act on a report on the alleged police transfers racket, Raut told TOI: “The CM will speak at the right time...they (BJP) do not have any atom bomb, rather a damp firecracker which does not even have a wick...”
On the Fadnavis-Koshyari meet, he said, “They all are official BJP workers. Some are in the

state administration

and some in

Raj Bhavan

. So, it was like a family gathering... The government is run by the CM, and not the governor. If they (BJP members) had met the CM and submitted documents, it would have helped to have a good dialogue between the two...Till Wednesday, Koshyari was a RSS pracharak, the chief minister of a BJP-ruled state, and held a Union minister’s post as a BJP member. So, is it an insult to call him a BJP worker?”
