As the government formation remains to be in standstill in Maharashtra over the rotational chief ministerial post, the Shiv Sena made another allegation against BJP of poaching its MLAs.
In its editorial mouthpiece news daily ‘Saamana’, Sena accused BJP of using "money power" for government formation. "Some people are trying to win over new Sena MLAs to with money power. Such complaints are increasing. Sena will not allow a politics devoid of values in the state," the editorial said.
In the editorial Sena repeated its claim for Chief Ministerial post saying people of Maharashtra want the chief minister to be from the Uddhav Thackeray-led party. “The previous govt is trying to form the new government with money power. But no one is helping farmers hence farmers want a Sena CM," editorial says.
Taking a jibe at BJP's Sudhir Mungantiwar who said that "good news" could soon be expected, the Sena said, "Sudhir Mungantiwar talked about good news but not about numbers. No one should think of ruining the prestige of Maharashtra. Sena is ready with swords to protect the integrity of the state."
However, Sena is ready to talk on the matter. It said, "Sena’s door is also open for talks."
