Maharashtra CM Fadnavis hits out at Shiv Sena in veiled attack, says 'a generous opponent better than a selfish friend'

New Delhi :  

In a veiled attack on the Shiv Sena, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said “a generous opponent is better than a selfish friend.”

While addressing a felicitation programme in an honour of NCP president Sharad Pawar in Amravati, Fadnavis did not cite Shiv Sena’s name as the latter has been criticising the ruling party BJP for its policies despite being in coalition in the state.

"There are few leaders in Indian politics who go beyond the realm of politics and forge a friendship. Sharad Pawar is one of them. A dialogue is necessary between political parties. We may have political differences with him but if an issue concerns the welfare of the state, Pawar himself calls and suggests remedial measures," Fadnavis said.

"This is the magnanimity which is needed. It is much better to have a magnanimous friend than a selfish friend. Sharad Pawar is one such opponent," Fadnavis said, adding that his comments should not be misconstrued. (With PTI Inputs)
