Mumbai: Shiv Sena lambasted on BJP removing them from the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and making their MPs sit in the opposition side in both houses of the Parliament.
The Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece Saamana said, “BJP leader Pralhad Joshi has announced the withdrawal of Shiv Sena from the NDA after tying up with Congress and NCP in Maharashtra to form a government in the state. of seats on opposition to Shiv Sena party leaders “The parties in both houses of Parliament. Those who were in BJP did not know about the work done by Shiv Sena.”
“When the BJP came into existence no party used to support it. When NDA was formed many leaders who are now holding posts in the present government were not holding any posts then and some of them were not even born,” the editorial said.
Shiv Sena said, “When NDA was formed then important decisions were taken only after meeting the alliance partners under the leadership of George Fernandes and Lal Krishna Advani. We ask who is the leader of the NDA now?”
It further said that these people announced the removal of Shiv Sena from NDA on the occasion of Bala Saheb Thackeray’s death anniversary.
“When the entire country was paying tribute to Balasaheb Thackeray, who was one of the founders of NDA at that time. These people expelled Shiv Sena from NDA. This decision was taken through a letter without any discussion or correspondence,” the party said.
BJP, which emerged as the single largest party, could not stake claim to form a government as its ally Shiv Sena remained firm on rotating the Chief Minister’s post and equal sharing of Cabinet berths.
