The BJP's most trusted ally, the Shiromani Akali Dal, announced its separation from the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Saturday evening. This decision of the Akali Dal created a political stir. At the same time, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP and party spokesperson Sanjay Raut said that an alliance that does not have Shiv Sena and Akali Dal cannot be called NDA.
Raut said the strong pillars of the NDA were the Shiv Sena and the Akali Dal. The Shiv Sena was forced to exit the NDA, now the Akali Dal left. NDA has got new partners now, I wish them all the best. The alliance that does not have Shiv Sena and Akali Dal, I do not consider it as NDA.
Devendra Fadnavis met
At the same time, the Shiv Sena leader said, I met Devendra Fadnavis yesterday to discuss some issues. He is a former CM. Apart from this, he is the leader of the opposition in Maharashtra and is in charge of the BJP for the Bihar elections. There may be ideological differences, but we are not enemies. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is aware of our meeting.
