Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Monday dismissed the possibility of a Madhya Pradesh-like overturn in Maharashtra, saying they are prepared to thwart any attempts made by the BJP to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra.


“BJP tried to form govt in Maharashtra too but failed. No such operation will be successful here. Surgeons like us are sitting here in the operation theatre. If anyone comes to do it, he himself will be operated upon,” Sanjay Raut said to ANI while responding about the current political scenario in Madhya Pradesh.

Building on to his statement to the ANI, Raut posted a tweet in Marathi saying that the MP virus will enter Maharashtra. “Maharashtra’s power is different. One operation flopped 100 days ago. The Maha Vikas Aghadi did a bypass surgery and saved Maharashtra,” the Sena leader said in a tweet in Marathi.

The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh remains in limbo as 23 of its elected MLAs, including strongman Jyotiraditya Scindia, tendered their resignation to the Governor yesterday. The Kamal Nath led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh brought together the different factions within Madhya Pradesh Congress, somehow holding on to the government with a slender majority. However, Scindia’s resignation acted as a catalyst for a raft of other disgruntled MLAs who threw a curve at the Congress party by submitting their resignation.

On the other hand, the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra is surviving on a tenuous alliance between ideologically disparate political parties of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress. The unholy alliance between the three political parties was hatched after the erstwhile BJP-Shiv Sena alliance crumbled following Sena’s unyielding demand of having a rotational chief-ministerial position. Sensing the opportunity to keep the BJP at bay in Maharashtra, Congress and NCP stitched an alliance with Sena and retained key cabinet portfolios while agreeing to install Uddhav Thackeray as the figurehead chief minister of the state. In the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly, the MVA government enjoys the support of over 165 MLAs.

While the alliance had put a curb on Sena’s overt manifestation of Hindutva, it had also cast a dent on Sena’s traditional vote-bank by ‘secularisation’ and transmogrification of the Balasaheb Thackeray’s hardcore Hindutva party into a meek Congress ally. Perhaps, in order to allay this growing concern, CM Uddhav Thackeray recently announced a donation of Rs 1 Crore for the construction of the Ram Temple, along with a ‘Maharashtra Bhawan’ in Ayodhya.

Notwithstanding the glaring fragility of the alliance in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena motormouth Sanjay Raut on Wednesday went on to assert that the Maha Vikas Aghadi is unshakable and any attempts made by the BJP to pull off a Madhya Pradesh-kind of ‘operation’ may instead result in BJP’s own downfall.
