Shiv Sena on Thursday alleged that the imposition of President’s rule in Maharashtra was a “scripted act” while stating that former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was shedding “crocodile tears”. 

In its editorial published in ‘Saamana’, Shiv Sena took a jibe at Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari saying that he has now given parties six months to form the government.

Shiv Sena further said that Devendra Fadnavis is shedding “crocodile tears” over the imposition of President’s rule as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in centre indirectly holds the power.

Earlier, Devendra Fadnavis in a press conference expressed that despite clear majority was given by the people of Maharashtra, President’s rule was imposed and it is “unfortunate”.

The former Chief Minister has expressed concern on whether President's rule would impact investments in Maharashtra. Fadnavis is shedding crocodile tears and it is a farce,” the editorial read. 

The editorial further criticised the Maharashtra Governor for giving Shiv Sena only 24 hours to stake claim while refusing to provide additional time to gather numbers to prove majority. 

It looked like some invisible power was controlling this game and decisions were taken accordingly,” the editorial published in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece stated. 

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, in the editorial, stated that if the governor had initiated the government formation procedure earlier, his actions to recommend President’s rule in Maharashtra would have been “ethically correct”.
