New Delhi: The Congress Party on Monday said the ‘incompetency’ of the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra Government has forced key ally, the Shiv Sena, to target it.
“I am not able to understand why the Shiv Sena is making these allegations against the Maharashtra Government. May be they feel that the state government, which they are also a part of, has become incompetent,” Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit told ANI.
“However it is true that ever since the Devendra Fadnavis led-Government has come to power in Maharashtra, there has been a decline in almost all the sectors in the state. Recently, in the panchayat elections in the state, BJP was on the fourth position while Congress and NCP were at the first and second spot respectively. May be, due to this fear, the Shiv Sena is saying all this,” he added.
The Congress leader asserted that the Shiv Sena’s call to stop ISIS should be taken seriously not because of the ISIS expansion in the state but because one of the allies of the state government is talking about their incompetency.
With several suspected terrorist being nabbed in the state for alleged links with ISIS, the Shiv Sena on Monday said that the Maharashtra Government should make proactive efforts to curb the expansion of the deadly terror outfit.
The Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece Saamna, said that the ISIS has made Maharashtra its remote control from where it wants to expand in the entire nation.
“ISIS has deeply penetrated Maharashtra and it is a great threat for the state as well as for the nation. Their intention to raise the ISIS flags is an attempt to destabilize and create a sense of insecurity in Maharashtra. The Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad (ATS), along with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested many suspects of ISIS in the state which is commendable,” the editorial said.
“It is a great concern for the Chief Minister if the remote control of the terrorist organisation is in Maharashtra which is trying to expand in the entire nation. It is true that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has the remote control of the state in his hands but it is also true that ISIS has made Maharashtra its remote control in the country,” it added.(ANI)
