Congress attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for its decision to launch a joint campaign and manifesto with the Shiv Sena for the coming assembly elections in Maharashtra, saying that “there is no relevance in BJP calling itself a national party after this”.
“BJP’s decision for joint fight does not clear its stand. Does it accept the Shiv Sena’s campaign against people from other states? BJP should explain, ” party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed told mediapersons in New Delhi.
“Sena had gained by its anti-South Indian campaign. BJP then had no government in South India. But it has a government in Karnataka now. BJP calls itself a national party but after this step, there is no relevance in the party calling itself a national party,” he added.
