BJP's "polarisation attempt" failed to click with Delhi voters: Shiv Sena

The Shiv Sena praised Delhi Chief Minister and AAP president Arvind...

  • In his weekly column in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana', its executive editor and senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said the Delhi assembly results showed PM Modi and Amit Shah are not invincible. He also criticised BJP's "religion-centric" political strategy and lauded the developmental works of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government.

    Private member’s bills rarely proceed beyond discussion and it is unclear how Sena’s new allies Congress and NCP will view the subject of Desai’s bill and might be tempted to see the move in political terms as being intended to target Muslims more than other sections of the population.

    Shiv Sena mocks BJP over the Delhi poll drubbing in their mouthpiece Saamana. 'Selfishness of BJP is defeated', says the editorial in Saaman...

    NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday claimed the Delhi Assembly poll results indicated that "winds of change" were blowing in the country, and said the BJP tried to polarise voters but failed.

    The ruling Shiv Sena said the BJP got only "limited success" in its efforts to "polarise" votes over the ongoing Shaheen Bagh protest. Women have been holding sit-in protests at the Shaheen Bagh against the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act, the proposed countrywide National Register of Citizens and the National Population Register.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday announced in the Lok Sabha formation of a 15-member autonomous trust to construct the temple at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh.

    Of these, BJP currently has 18 MPs, while the Congress has 11. The rest of the seats belong to other parties. In all, BJP has 82 MPs in the Rajya Sabha, while the Congress has 46 MPs. The results of state elections will have some bearing on the party members that come to the Rajya Sabha.

    The situation in Mumbai, whose budget is bigger than several states, bodes ill for India’s economic revival.

    "The Muslim infiltrators from Pakistan and Bangladesh should be driven out of India. There should be no doubt about that. But it is amusing to see a party changing its flag for it," the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'. It added that the MNS is unlikely to achieve anything from its new Hindutva stand as Shiv Sena had never shed its saffron colour.

    Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said the BJP did not lose last year's Maharashtra assembly elections, but was betrayed by the Shiv Sena. He also said that the Sena not only left its ally, but also its own ideology.

    Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh had met the organisers of the protest on Monday and appealed to them to wind up the protest. However, a section of protesters is said to be keen to continue the sit-in.

    Hegde, a former Union minister, reportedly claimed at an event in Bangaluru that the entire freedom movement was staged with the consent and support of the British, and the independence movement led by Gandhi was a "drama".
