Shiv Sena’s attack on BJP indicates that the party founded by late Bal Thackeray has “lost track and are talking only about BJP,” Rudy, BJP’s Maharashtra affairs in-charge, told a news agency in an interview.
Rudy added, “If they (Sena) are contesting to win the elections, then they should be contesting against Congress and NCP. But if they are talking about BJP, it possibly shows that they have lost the battle”.
“They are cribbing partners. We are absolutely not talking about them as a matter of policy. Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) has clearly spelt it out,” he said.
“It is amusing that Sena isn’t fighting the actual enemies of the state. And they say we have betrayed them. How does it matter? You were claiming to be a larger partner and more powerful. Why should you complain?” he said.
“There was a lack of communication. And Sena was still in the old mode for some reason and wasn’t ready to scale down from 151 seats. And for us, it was practically impossible to come down below 130,”he said.
