Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Anant Kumar Hegde has claimed that Devendra Fadnavis was made Maharashtra Chief Minister despite not having a majority to prevent central funds worth Rs 40,000 crore, from being “misused” by the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.  “A chief minister has access to around Rs 40,000 crore from the Centre. He knew if Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena government comes to power it would misuse funds meant for development. So, it was decided that there should be a drama. Fadnavis became Chief Minister and in 15 hours he moved Rs 40,000 crore back to Centre,” Hegde added. Rubbishing the claim, Fadnavis said that whatever has been said against him was totally false. “I have not heard what Anant Kumar Hegde has said, but from what I have heard from the media that Maharashtra government gave Rs 40,000 crore to the central government, it is completely false. I deny this. Nothing like this happened,” Fadnavis told media here.
