Uddhav Thackeray is going overboard before the Municipal Corporation elections in Mumbai and Thane. All along the Shiv Sena party is in alliance and the coalition partner at the centre and in the Maharashtra State Government. All of a sudden the party chief dares and talks about snapping ties with BJP. It is not the time to show remorse as both the parties are a force to reckon with and can move mountains with their co-operation. Instead of having a cordial relationship with the coalition partner, Shiv Sena is looking for parting ways and that is not good for the two partners. Again, the leader lauds Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but pretends to be against BJP which is not in good taste. The double standard applied will prove cannon fodder for the other regional parties and the leading party may lose the credentials before the Municipal Corporation elections. United we stand, divided we fall is correct as far as Sena-BJP coalition is concerned.
