Sena can't be in govt and opposition at same time: Fadnavis”

He described BJP as Shiv Sena's "principal enemy".

Shiv Sena spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut on Monday heaped praise on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, saying the leader has now earned the credibility to lead the grand old party as president. Not just that, he also went as far as to say nice things about Congress' Rahul Gandhi. "They (the BJP) are, thus, our principal enemy", Raut told reporters in Nashik on the third anniversary of Devendra Fadnavis' govenment in Maharashtra. We are (in the government) just for the sake of it.

"A leader is one who is accepted by people".

In a clear bid to hurt the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) where it could hurt the most, the Shiv Sena has made a decision to contest from at least 25 seats in the Gujarat Assembly elections due in December.

Hitting out at the Narendra Modi-led BJP disposition, Shiv Sena had on Monday lamented that despite a "pro-Hindutva" government at the Centre, issues like Ram Temple in Ayodhya and "ghar wapsi" of displaced Kashmiri Pandits are still unresolved. There is a substantial change in Rahul Gandhi since 2014. "People like to listen to him now", he said.

Unless some of these projects are completed by the 2019 Assembly polls, the BJP-led government runs the risk of losing voter confidence that it will deliver on its promises.Scams and corruption allegationsAfter coming to power on the plank of non-corruption, the Fadnavis-led government has undone its own USP of "being different" , As Reported By Hindustan Times.

During the press meet, Raut said that the party is ready to fight elections whether or not there is an alliance with the BJP.

"Bala-saheb was the first person to speak on this issue".

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said the Shiv Sena must realise that it can not play the role of a ruling party and opposition simultaneously.

He denied reports about Milind Narvekar, an aide of Uddhav Thackeray, giving an him an "ultimatum" against inducting former Sena leader Narayan Rane in the state cabinet.
