Maharashtra politics smacks of opportunism of worst kind, has instability written all over it

Shiv Sena ending its decades-old alliance with BJP, and NCP-Congress on the brink of backing Sena to form a new government in Maharashtra is political opportunism of the worst kind. This unseemly political spectacle isn’t what people voted for. Whatever emerges from this has political instability written all over it.

  1. इस का मतलब है कि खुदा कभी राजनीति मे कदम नही रखेगा. क्यूं कि नंगे को खुदा भी डरता है

  2. हमाम की तरह राजनीति मे भी सभी नंगे होते है, चाहे मुम्बई हो या दिल्ली.

  3. Fortunately, the state has Shri Sharad Pawar, the original Manager of Contradictions. No matter how unwieldy the proposed three party alliance appears to be, with serious ideological differences between the Congress and the Sahib Sena, he can help hold it together, weather the storms that inevitably lie ahead. 2. For five years, with 63 MLAs against its partner’s 122, the SS did not receive a single important portfolio. In Delhi, with 18 MPs, it had Heavy Industry, an albatross reserved for Maharashtra. We do not know if a rotation had been promised for the CM’s post, but beyond that it has got a raw deal. 3. The BMC is vital for the SS, something it has won on its own, including through terms of Congress – NCP rule. 4. A certain magnanimity is required to make coalitions work.
