Mumbai [India], Feb 18 (ANI): Ahead of the civic polls in the state, the Shiv Sena, in its mouthpiece 'Saamna', fired a fresh salvo at its former ally in the BMC polls the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said Maharashtra would have been way different, had the 'reality' of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis been disclosed earlier. The Sena averred that the mismanagement done by Fadnavis in Nagpur Municipal Corporation is no secret now. "Fadnavis, who has been politically brought up by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), uttered mismanagement in the Nagpur Municipal Corporation. His endeavours, during his tenure, were foul and doubtful and this truth is out in open," the article said. "Had this side of Fadnavis been exposed earlier, we would not have been suffering the way we are," it added. Further, in a sardonic attack, the Shiv Sena editorial said the Centre had left the Maharashtra Chief Minister all alone. "The way Abhimanyu was stranded alone in the 'chakravyooh', the same way Fadnavis has been left alone. The Centre is just pretending that it supports Fadnavis, but, in real, he is left to fight alone," said the article. The Sena and BJP snapped their ties for the BMC polls, but, they remain allies in the ruling coalitions in Maharashtra and at the Centre. The Uddhav Thackeray-led party, however, has dropped broad hints that it will review its support to the BJP-led state government after the civic poll results are announced. Elections to 10 municipal corporations, including Mumbai, are slated for February 21 and the results will be announced on February 23. (ANI)
