Shiv Sena blasts Prez rule in Maharashtra

The Shiv Sena today alleged that imposition of President's rule in Maharashtra was a 'scripted act' and took a jibe at the Governor, saying he has now given parties six months to form government.

It also said that former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is shedding 'crocodile tears' over the imposition of President's rule as power is still indirectly in the hands of the BJP.

Criticising the Governor for giving the Shiv Sena just 24 hours to stake claim and refusing it additional time to muster numbers, an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana said, 'It looked like some invisible power was controlling this game and decisions were taken accordingly.'
