Reacting to the patch-up between the estranged allies Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the opposition Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) called it a mockery of democracy and said mere numbers would not ensure stability of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government.

“The kind of words used against each other by leaders of both the parties in the last one month was for everyone to see. This is nothing but a mockery of democracy. For the first time in the state’s history, the main, 63-MLA-stong opposition party has walked over to the treasury benches within a month of new government taking over,” said state Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sunil Tatkare.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced this morning that Sena was joining the government.

Tatkare said while Sena leader Eknath Shinde was touring the state as the leader of opposition in the Assembly, the top leaders of two parties were negotiating a power sharing deal.

“With 122 of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and 63 of Shiv Sena, the government looks stable…in the 288-member house, but with the experience of past one month, it remains to be seen how things work out between the two saffron allies and whether the new government is beneficial for the people,” he added.
Congress said that Sena leaders won’t have their pride intact and heads high while taking the oath as ministers.

State Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said coming together of Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will lead to unstable government.

    It seems the Sena has lost its self respect . Politically also it has been marginalised. Leader of opposition to joining the Government would make the chameleon blush.

      """""---Congress-Nationalist Congress Party mock coming together of Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party-------" The Congress party is now in its one-way self destruct/extinction mode , it is synonymous with losers without grace. If these 2 parties don't go together then they said BJP., behaved as a big brother , if they sort out their differences , then they say opportunistic. THESE JOKERS HAVE FORGOTTEN DIVIDING THE MINISTRY AMONGST ALLIANCES IN UPA I& II and waiting for DMK., to nominate another ACE CROOK TO BE A MINISTER. ONCE LOOTING WAS POINTED OUT THE MOUNI BAABAA ( THE GREATEST OPPORTUNIST) SAID COALITION COMPULSIONS. This same out fit now barks saying -------
