Counting of votes continues in West Bengal. Seeing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lagging behind, the Shiv Sena has taunted the saffron party. The party has said that those predicting political turmoil in Maharashtra should also worry about whether the central government that cannot handle the Corona epidemic will be able to remain stable.
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said in the weekly column of his party’s mouthpiece Saamana, “Those who are claiming that there will be a political change in Maharashtra after the elections on May 2, should also remember that tremors will be felt in Delhi as well. ”
Sanjay Raut, who is also the executive editor of the mouthpiece, said that Mamta Banerjee’s victory in West Bengal would be a personal defeat for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who led the election campaign in the state.
He wrote, “Those who claim that the future of the Government of Maharashtra is dependent on the results of West Bengal are living in misunderstanding. I wonder on what basis some people are saying that Amit Shah will now focus on abolishing the Maharashtra government. They will either lure the ruling party MLAs on the basis of their money power or impose President’s rule citing our failure to deal with the virus. “
He said, “If corona is the reason, then we have to accept the fact that the central government has no moral right to continue in office. In a time when there is a shortage of drugs and oxygen and more than 5,000 people are dying, how can they think of joining such a political drama? To win a state (West Bengal), these people have put the entire country at risk, and this has been accepted by the Supreme Court. The Madras High Court has blamed the Election Commission for this situation. “
There has been no immediate response from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on the Shiv Sena’s allegation.
Let me tell you that in the trend so far, Trinamool Congress is seen winning more than 200 seats. BJP currently has 84 to 85 seats. The Congress and the Left coalition have been the worst in Bengal.
