Former Mah CM Rane launches new party

Shivsena lashes BJP, says don’t teach us patriotism

Though he sharply criticized the ruling ally Shiv Sena, he supported the much-maligned bullet train proposal on grounds that it was "a development project" which was necessary just like mobile phones. He also claimed he had offers from all main political parties in the state after his resignation from the Congress. Rane indirectly pointed to his future allies and opponents by targeting the Sena and defending the BJP on various counts, including supporting the bullet train project.

Uddhav Thackeray blasted the BJP in his Dusshera rally address, and said that he won't hesitate to pull the plug on his partnership.

Thackeray reminded BJP that they entered into alliance for the sole objective of unity of Hindu votes and if BJP thinks that Shiv Sena is no use to them then they will see how to deal with it. It was made necessary by the threats of the Shiv Sena - which had been upset over reports that Mr Rane was expected to join the BJP - that it would walk out of the government. "Let us know what is your definition of Hindutva", he asked. "We have seen this in the Congress. Mr Fadnavis opposed his induction to avoid that embarrassment", said close confidant of the chief minister.

He said the Sena would remain in the government but continue to criticise the BJP on various issues.

Rane said the MSP would not champion regional chauvinism or a particular religion or caste.

It was being widely speculated for a long time that after quitting the Congress, Rane would join the BJP.

"The aim is to work for all and pursue development", the 65-year-old Rane told a news conference in Mumbai.

NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik compared Mr. Rane with former Congressman and Gujarat CM Shankarsinh Vaghela, hinting at BJP trying to divide opposition votes. "The Japanese bank will not give a loan to support our loan waiver for farmers or for upgrading suburban railway infrastructure". "Don't push us to corner and force us to take the decision (to withdraw from the government)".
