Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 10 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ram Kadam on Thursday hit out at its ally Shiv Sena for supporting Congress in Palus-Kadegaon assembly seat bypoll.
He said that it exposes the duplicity of the party.
"Cut your nails and declare yourself a martyr, this is Shiv Sena's thinking. Supporting Congress in Palus-Kadegaon assembly seat bypoll exposes their duplicity," he told ANI.
Earlier, the Shiv Sena had extended support to late Congress leader Patangrao Kadam's son for Palus-Kadegaon assembly by-poll.
In a press statement, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had said that party was willing that by-elections to Palus-Kadegaon seat should be unopposed as a shraddhanjali (homage) to Patangrao Kadam, who was a great mass leader.
"But unfortunately, that didn't happen. So, Shiv Sena is extending support to his son Vishwajit Kadam," Raut said in the statement.
The Palus-Kadegaon assembly seat fell vacant after senior Maharashtra Congress leader Patangrao Kadam passed away last month. The by-poll is scheduled for May 28. (ANI)
