BJP has dared its Maharashtra’s alliance partner Shiv Sena to take ‘divorce’ if they don’t like them.
In an article published in BJP’s Maharashtra unit’s fortnightly publication’Manogat’ titled ‘When Are You Taking Talaq? Mr Raut’, BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari reminded Shiv Sena of the sacrifices they had made to keep the tie-up intact.

Criticising the recent Shiv Sena lawmaker Sanjay Raut remark, in which he said that BJP-led government is worse than the government of Nizam, the article said:
“On one hand they eat ‘biryani’ in plate given by the same ‘Nizam’ and then criticise us on the other hand. They have got ministries at the Centre and state, enjoy perks of power only because of the favour of the same ‘Nizam’ and then curse BJP. This is called ‘ungratefulness’.”
It added that if Sena feels so oppressed by ‘Nizam’, then why don’t they just walk out.”But, they don’t show that courage,” says article.
The article further went on say that while Shiv Sena feel the present government has done a lot of injustice, they don’t see the great amount of work done through ‘Jal Yukta Shivar’ in Marathwada.

Defending his article, Bhandari told PTI, “Earlier, we chose to ignore such things but they have crossed the limits of decency. This was discussed in our recent state convention as well. But now we want to tell them straight, if they don’t find it worth, they should find their own path.”
