BJP has strangled democracy: Sena on U’khand
The Shiv Sena on Wednesday came out strongly against its long-term ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the imposition of President’s rule in Uttarakhand, saying it had “strangulated democracy” in the name of morality and cautioned that this may create instability and anarchy in the country. Sena added that its alliance with BJP in Maharashtra is “temporary and borne out of political compulsion”, and there is “no question of morality or immorality” in the tie-up. The Centre had on Sunday brought Uttarakhand under President’s rule citing a Constitutional breakdown in the wake of a rebellion in the ruling Congress. “The Bharatiya Janata Party used nine rebel Congress MLAs to bring instability in Uttarakhand government,” the Sena alleged in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
