Shiv Sena cleared the air on its support to BJP-led government in Maharashtra by stating it as temporary in nature. Launching a fresh attack on Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, Shiv Sena said that the future of Chief Minister remains uncertain
“The Chief Minister is going around giving assurances about Mumbai everyday at a time when his chair depends on the support of the Sena. His own future remains uncertain, yet he wants to change the future of Mumbai. He should not forget that temporary support has been given by Sena only to let Maharashtra remain stable,” an editorial in the party mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.
Saying that the BJP has lost race, it added that “if developmental works have been done in the last two-and-a-half years (since the government came to power), he would not have been forced to go begging for votes”.
“The CM talks of removing the intestines of the corrupt. In that case, his own corrupt cabinet ministers should be cautious because he may go after them in an uncontrollable manner,” it went on.
Not only this, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray, in a veiled attack spoke of BJP as a desperate party that is allegedly indulging in a misinformation campaign by running a fake exit poll and through trolls on social media.
“Desperate measures. Shame... I hope Election Commission takes action on those candidates spreading fake exit poll lies,” he tweeted.
This high-voltage drama casts a shadow over the stability of Fadnavis government.
