BJP’s Narayan Rane says 35 of the 56 Sena MLAs are unhappy with the leadership

BJP’s Narayan Rane says 35 of the 56 Sena MLAs are unhappy with the leadership

BJP MP Narayan Rane has given rise to speculation by mentioning that 35 of the 56 Shiv Sena MLAs in the state are currently unsatisfied with its own party’s leadership. This could cause fresh concern for Shiv Sena chief and Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray. Shiv Sena joined forces with the Indian National Congress (INC) and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to form the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance in the state last year.

Rane further mentioned that the government was “non-performing”, also raising the matter of the time taken to form the government by the three parties. It was recently rumoured that Shiv Sena member and MLA Abdul Sattar was leaving the party after being left out of the cabinet, being allotted an MoS (Minister of State) post instead. Meanwhile, Revenue Minister in the Maharashtra government, Balasaheb Thorat from Congress recently expressed his dissatisfaction with being allotted the post of guardian minister of Kolhapur. 

“What we can expect from such a government? They don't know anything about running the government. They took five weeks to form the government, from this one can expect how they will run the show,” Rane said speaking in Thane. He also mentioned that the promise of loan waivers by the government is “hollow” since there’s no specific timeline for when it will be implemented.

Rane wasn’t so vocal about speculations doing the rounds in his own party, however. When asked about the potential coalition between Raj Thackeray’s MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) and the BJP, Rane plainly stated that only the BJP chief will speak on the matter. The BJP leader was also confident that the party will come back to power in Maharashtra soon.
