SHIV SENA AIMING FOR A LEADERSHIP ROLE IN MAHARASHTRA

PARTY DETERMINED TO GET BACK ITS LOST MARATHA BASE
Author: Mriganka M Bhowmick - Published 31-10-2019 03:21 GMT-0000
The coalition is always a compulsion; it is never a choice for peaceful co-existence to take the power sharing ahead. Political power, by its nature, is always up for grab and sharing it with any other political party hinders the organizational growth of the party. The so called coalition Dharma holds good up to the juncture where the major partner in coalition is not critically dependent on other partners in numbers. The power and vote bank consolidation are in the heart of Indian politics which usually contradicts the politics of coalition. The Maharashtra potpourri of BJP-Shiv Sena tussle is a reflection of that. The contention regarding 50:50 power-sharing between BJP and Shiv Sena is the prelude of that contraction only.

Erle Stanley Gardner could well have written another Perry Mason thriller with the title: “The Mystery of the European Union Parliamentary Delegation” visiting Kashmir. There is a lot of mystery about the status of the delegation, who invited them, who fixed their meeting with the Prime Minister, who paid for their travel and stay expenses and how the members of the delegation were selected and by whom. One thing is certain. They neither represent the European Union nor the governments of their countries. Their status and credibility are being widely questioned even in Europe.
