Shiv Sena MLA Abdul Sattar has offered to step down as a minister of state in Maharashtra, sources said on Saturday.

According to former MP Chandrakant Khaire, Sattar is angry over the Shiv Sena's decision to support Congress in the Zilla Parishad president elections. Khaire said he had a conversation with Sattar at a hotel. 


Speaking to the media, Sattar's son Sameer Sattar said: "I have no information about this, only he can speak about it and I am sure he will speak soon, better to wait and watch."

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday said Maharashtra government has no information about minister Abdul Sattar's resignation.

"There are no differences in the Cabinet. If any minister resigns, normally the resignation is sent to the chief minister or Raj Bhawan. Both have no information about it so far," Raut said.

Sattar was among the 36 Congress, Natonalist Congress Party and Shiv Sena leaders who were sworn-in as ministers on December 30.
