New Delhi, November 22, 2019:

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has termed the alliance of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress in Maharashtra as “opportunistic”.

Gadkari said that the base of the alliance was opportunism and the motive of the three political parties is to keep the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) out of power in Maharashtra. Calling the alliance a temporary one, he added that Sena-Congress-NCP would not last more than eight months.

Earlier, it was reported that the Shiv Sena was willing to revive alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) if the latter responds to the 50-50 deal.
