MSP chief Narayan Rane dares Shiv Sena to quit NDA

A day after BJP president Amit Shah called on Uddhav Thackeray in an attempt to placate the sulking ally, the Shiv Sena chief today said whatever is happening is "all drama"

Mumbai: A day after BJP president Amit Shah called on Uddhav Thackeray in an attempt to placate the sulking ally, the Shiv Sena chief today said whatever is happening is “all drama”. 

Addressing party cadres at Palghar near Mumbai, where Sena candidate lost to BJP’s nominee in the recent Lok Sabha by-election, Thackeray referred to the meeting on Wednesday and said, “Whatever is going on now is all drama”.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Swabhimani Paksha chief Narayan Rane on Thursday targeted the Shiv Sena and dared the Uddhav Thackeray-headed party to walk out of the BJP-led NDA government in the state as it announced its decision to contest elections on its own.

“You talk about fighting polls without an alliance (with the BJP). Then why do you not let go of power? You criticise your ally while being part of the government. Contesting elections separately does not befit the Sena,” Rane said, addressing his party workers in suburban Bandra.

Rane, a Rajya Sabha member, said there were various challenges plaguing the state but no political party seemed interested in tackling them, hence, he had to form his own political party.

 

The former chief minister of Maharashtra further questioned if the Sena was formed for the welfare of Marathi-speaking individuals, why did the percentage of such people decrease in Mumbai. “Marathi people gave everything to the Sena but what did the party give back to them?” he questioned.

“If the entire responsibility of governance is on the BJP, are you just there to sit and eat? he asked.  Slamming the Congress, Rane said the party did not fulfil the promises it had made to the people.
