Mumbai, November 16 

The Shiv Sena alleged on Saturday that the BJP, now exuding confidence of forming government in Maharashtra after backing off initially, made its intention of horse-trading under the guise of President’s rule evident.

In its mouthpiece, Sena hit out at former CM Devendra Fadnavis over his remark that the Sena-NCP-Congress alliance won’t last beyond six months. “Those with 105 seats had earlier conveyed to the Governor that they do not have the majority. How come they are now claiming that only they will form the government,” Sena asked. 

“...the intention of horse-trading stands exposed now. The lies of those promising transparent governance are becoming evident now,” its mouthpiece said. — PTI
