Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister disapproves of Shiv Sena-NCP alliance

Hubballi, Nov 12 (UNI) Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said on Tuesday that Shiv Sena's decision to form a government with NCP in Maharashtra would lead to its downfall and reminded the Hindu nationalist party of its founder Bal Thackeray's disapproval of both Congress and NCP.
Speaking to presspersons, the minister said that the Shiv Sena-NCP alliance, if formed, would meet the same fate as that of JD(S)-Congress government's. "The party should not forget that they won more number of seats with the help of Narendra Modi. Party with maximum number of MLAs should have the right to post of Chief Minister, but Shiv Sena thinks otherwise."
"Bal Thackeray fought against their (Congress and NCP's) appeasement policy." Joshi added.
"Snapping ties with its age-old ally, and joining hands with parties which are against its ideologies is the first step of the downfall of the Shiv Sena," he added.
Maharashtra on Tuesday came under President's Rule after Ram Nath Kovind approved Governor BS Koshyari's report recommending it.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena scion Aaditya Thackeray on Tuesday moved to Supreme court and sought an urgent hearing against Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's refusal to grant it more time to submit the required letters of support to form the next government on Monday night.
The move came after no party staked claim to form the government even more than a fortnight after the results of the Assembly polls were announced on October 24.
