Now that the Shiv Sena has irreparably broken its ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Congress party and the Nationalist Congress Party appears to be squeezing the Shiv Sena out of its every remaining bit of dignity. Earlier, we had reported that the NCP was demanding the Chief Minister’s chair for two and a half years and the Deputy Chief Minister’s chair for Ajit Pawar.
