Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut today said that BJP leaders had claimed in the past that their party, as a policy, was against the creation of deputy chief minister's post.

It has now created the same post in Uttar Pradesh, he pointed out.

"Shiv Sena never demanded the post (during the talks between two parties for alliance in Maharashtra). The issue of deputy chief minister came up during meetings with BJP leaders where they said it was BJP's policy decision not to create such a post," Raut said.
