Mum­bai: BJP’s plan to em­bar­rass the Shiv Sena by say­ing that the for­mer would never align with the Congress to come to power in the BMC, has of­fended the Shiv Sena. An­gered at the BJP’s in­sin­u­a­tion that the Sena was di­lut­ing its ide­ol­ogy, the lat­ter has now hit out at the state­ment of Ma­ha­rash­tra chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis say­ing that his party would never align with the Congress.

In an edi­to­rial in its party mouth piece ‘Saa­mana’, it has slammed the BJP and ac­cussed Fad­navis of still speak­ing as if he is in an ‘elec­tion cam­paign’.

In an acer­bic at­tack, the edi­to­rial slammed the BJP for its dou­ble stan­dards. “They they have no is­sues with ty­ing up with Me­hbooba Mufti of the PDP in Jammu and Kash­mir. The Congress is def­i­nitely du­bi­ous but align­ing with those like Mufti who openly sup­port a ter­ror­ist like Afzal Guru is more dan­ger­ous,” said the edi­to­rial.

It al­leged that the BJP’s claim of not go­ing with the Congress is quite ‘hol­low’ as the BJP has been tak­ing in a lot of mem­bers from both the Congress and the NCP. The edi­to­rial al­leged that by tak­ing in mem­bers from the Congress and the NCP, the ‘BJP has just be­come an­other Congress’.
