BJP has got a taste of its own medicine in Maharashtra: SDPI
The Social Democratic Party of India, (SDPI), has said the adage that what goes around comes around has been proved to be literally true in Maharashtra and as such BJP has got a taste of its own medicine. Which way it will turn in the near future is hard to say? But without doubt the BJP has lost face in the manner in which it installed Devendra Fadnavis in small hours of 23rd November as Chief Minister and the abject way he quit.
SDPI national president M. K. Faizy in a statement hoped the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress alliance will form a stable incorruptible government and serve the people selflessly and truthfully. He further hoped that Uddhav Thackeray, who has matured as a decent politician, will now direct the Sena to a more secular line and the BJP will have go it alone as the self-proclaimed guardians of Hindutva. The Supreme Court of India played a very constructive role in preventing the rotten politics from rewarding the corrupt. The shameless and brazen way in which BJP tried to misuse the Governor’s post to help them form a government suggests Sena’s insistence on a pre-poll 50-50 deal was reasonable and correct.
The game played by BJP in many states including Maharashtra has once again proved that its stated commitment to democratic principles has been nothing but duplicitous and it may be the death knell of the party in many states.
Faizy said regardless of Fadnavis’s effort to shield the central leadership, there can be no denying that both the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister had very crucial role in orchestrating an early morning drama in the Mumbai Raj Bhawan.
However, it can be a matter of satisfaction that despite huge odds, the Indian Constitution has survived a full 69 years and on Tuesday it marked its 70th birthday.
