The Shiv Sena yesterday launched a stinging attack on its ally BJP, saying “the much-touted Gujarat model has shaken” and the poll outcome in the state was a “warning bell” to those who believe in an autocratic rule. The Sena said Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Patidar leader Hardik Patel had been ridiculed as “monkeys” but “these ‘monkeys’ have slapped the ‘lion'”. The Sena attack on the BJP came in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, a day after the BJP retained power in Gujarat with a reduced tally of 99 seats against 115 last time. The Congress increased its tally from 61 seats last time to 77 this time. The Sena said the BJP had “barely managed to pass” the electoral exam but was pretending to have passed with distinction. The BJP won Gujarat and Himachal, but the Congress also did not lose, the editorial said.”The dream of a ‘Congress-Mukt Bharat’ (Congress-free India) remained unfulfilled,” the Shiv Sena said. This election result in Gujarat is a “warning bell for those who believe in an autocratic rule”, the Sena said.

“The BJP may have won the election but the discussion is about the strides Rahul Gandhi has taken. It was said that we (BJP) won’t get a single seat less than 150 in Gujarat, but it proved to be a tough task even to reach the 100 mark,” said the editorial. The party asked the BJP to pay heed to the “sterling performance” of Rahul Gandhi and Hardik Patel in Gujarat.
While the people of Gujarat stood behind Modi in 99 constituencies, the “Rahul Gandhi-Hardik Patel duo” emerged victorious in 77 seats, it said. “Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi had to play the Gujarati pride card (to win these elections),” it said. The Sena said there were some who ridiculed Rahul Gandhi and Hardik Patel as “monkeys” compared to the BJP leadership. “These monkeys have slapped the lion and sounded the danger alarm,” it added.

“Those who indulged in this ridicule now have to pretend that they have passed with distinction, despite barely managing to pass (the poll exam),” the Sena said.”The much-touted Gujarat model (of development) is shaken. We only wish that in (the) 2019 (elections) it does not collapse,” it said.On the BJP workers rejoicing yesterday, the Shiv Sena wondered whether the party has scored “such a scintillating victory” that it was worthy of being celebrated with dancing. “To summarise, one can say that the ‘wind’ has not changed direction (but) it has certainly slowed down. The (once) high tide has now subsided,” it said.

    Modi managed to come out of a political CHAKRAVYOU by all the opposition forces of India! He needs to be congratulated for his courage and passion to win against the odds who had preplanned his defeat more than a year ahead of the polls. • Supari means a paid warrior who takes upon himself to deal the death blow to an enemy. Congress has become a Mahim fort and has bchurning options to deal with Modi who is shredding the party to extinction. And because Muslims have always been an asset for the party and there is division deep threatening it there is every reason to believe that among other measures that blind bank vote will have to be preserved. To do that there have several forms of supari to undo what is undone. The student revolt suparis have been identified and they are working and have worked quite well in Gujrat. Here it is interesting to note that Himachal Pradesh election was quite ignored so that the success would be resounding in Gujrat polls.

      Shiv Sena having so much hatred towards BJP, should walk-out of NDA and play role of an affective opposition. It has no guts to do that.
