Matoshree sees BJP loss as sign of things to come, may re­think ties

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

The

BJP’s rout in the Nanded-Waghala Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion elec­tion may force Matoshree to re­think its ties with the BJP, a top Shiv Sena strate­gist said on Fri­day. “There could be pres­sure on the party lead­er­ship from grass root Shiv Sainiks to break the al­liance with the BJP. The num­ber of Sainiks who think that the BJP’s un­pop­u­lar­ity may be­gin to rub off on the Sena is not neg­li­gi­ble at all,” he said. Claim­ing that the Nanded civic poll re­sult is a “grim warn­ing” to the BJP, he said: “The Congress’s hand­some win re­flects the chang­ing mood of the Ma­ha­rash­tra elec­torate.” — Am­bar­ish Mishra
