Fadnavis said his government did not intend to prepone the Assembly polls and added the two elections will be held as per their respective schedules.
"Ashokrao should not hurry into occupying Opposition benches again. We are going to hold the elections on (their respective) time. We do not intend to prepone (the Assembly) polls," Fadnavis told reporters in Palghar district after an event.
Addressing a Congress rally in Aurangabad Thursday, Chavan had claimed that Fadnavis would dissolve the state Assembly on February 28 when its session concludes. Chavan reiterated it while speaking to reporters in Pune on Friday.
The Lok Sabha polls are due in April-May, while the Assembly polls are likely to be held in October this year.
