Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Raosaheb Danve has invoked the interim collapse of Maha Vikas Aghadi’s (MVA) government to say that no one knows what will happen after two months if “such politics” continue .
Speaking at a rally in Kannad town of Aurangabad district on Monday night, the BJP MP also spoke about the changed political stance of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena following the results of the 2019 polls.
“No one imagined that the MVA government, which had been in office for two and a half years, would fall. But such magic happened that the government fell overnight. If such a policy is going on, who can guess what will happen after two months?” he asked.
The Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government, comprising Shiv Sena (UBT), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress, fell in June this year following the uprising of Eknath Shinde and 39 MLAs from Sena against Thackeray’s leadership.
Subsequently, Shinde was sworn in as Chief Minister with the support of the BJP and Devendra Fadnavis became Deputy Chief Minister.
Danve said that when the results of the 2019 parliamentary elections came out, the Shiv Sena realized that the next government cannot be formed without them.
“They said all options were open to the party and cut ties with their old ally BJP,” he added.
After splitting with BJP over sharing the post of prime minister, Shiv Sena joined hands with NCP and Congress and the MVA government was formed with Thackeray becoming the prime minister.
