Uddhav Thackeray’s announcement of supporting Draupadi Murmu has created panic in Mahavikas Aghadi. The remaining two partners of MVA i.e. Congress and NCP are supporting the opposition’s presidential candidate Yashwant Sinha.
Congress raised questions on Shiv Sena’s decision
In the presidential election, Shiv Sena has to come with an NDA candidate. Now it can be called pressure of MPs or fear of breaking the party. Congress has questioned the decision of Shiv Sena chief. Maharashtra Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat tweeted, “Everyone who supports Constitution and democracy is supporting Yashwant Sinha for the post of President. We don’t know why Shiv Sena is supporting Draupadi Murmu. Shiv Sena is part of the MVA, but it has not discussed it with us.”
What is the stand of NCP?
Uddhav Thackeray’s decision to go with the NDA can be heavy on the Mahavikas Aghadi. However, the NCP has termed the decision of supporting Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election as a personal decision of Shiv Sena. NCP leader Jayant Patil says that there is no point of moving away from Mahavikas Aghadi. Even in the past, Shiv Sena has been taking its own decision in the election of the President. The one whom Shiv Sena supports becomes the President. But it is his party’s decision, we have no role in it.
What did Sanjay Raut say?
NCP says that Shiv Sena is supporting NDA’s presidential candidate, it does not mean that it is supporting NDA. On the other hand, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has also made it clear that the support of Draupadi Murmu does not mean the support of BJP.
