Mumbai: After the fall of the Puducherry government, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday said that the Congress party was losing its ground.
Puducherry Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy resigned ahead of the confidence vote on Monday following a series of resignations of party MLAs and a DMK legislator.
The Shiv Sena, in its mouthpiece Saamana, cited the decline of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh last year when the Kamal Nath-led government in the state had to resign in March when 22 Congress MLAs from Jyotiraditya Scindia quit after resigning.
The Shiv Sena alleged that the BJP is now planning to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra, claiming “development is far away”.
The Shiv Sena is the head of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra, of which the NCP and Congress are constituents.
The ruling party in the state said, “BJP will have to face not only Congress but Shiv Sena in Maharashtra.”
In November, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Raosaheb Danve expressed confidence in forming a government in Maharashtra in a few months
The Shiv Sena also accused the BJP of using central agencies to threaten the opposition.
