Mumbai : Two days after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee slammed the Congress, questioning the existence of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) during her Mumbai visit, the Shiv Sena on Saturday said keeping the Congress away from national politics would mean strengthening fascist power and that they refuse to form a separate front without UPA. CM wants that front of other regional parties apart from UPA should be formed against the BJP.
Mamata’s statement on UPA Shivsena MP Sanjay Raut while speaking to media said ShivSena supremo has already said that if we wont make a good team how we will fight in 2024.
He also said “That no front can be formed without the Congress party . Third- Fourth front is of no use. There will be division of votes stating that UPA needs to be strengthened. Everyone should sit and talk. No one has ever questioned UPA and the chairperson Sonia Gandhi and her leadership. “
He then claimed that Mamata Banerjee is the senior and important leader.
Saamana Targets Mamata Banerjee’s UPA statement
It was in the Samana editorial party’s mouthpiece that Mamata Banerjee’s politics is not Congress oriented. From West UPA Bengal she wiped out the Congress, the Left and the BJP. And that Mamata is trying to keep Congress away from politics is like emphasizing the trend of the current ‘Fascist’ rule.
“Mamata Banerjee’s question on UPA is a million dollar one. But, similarly, even the NDA is not in existence today. Modi’s party does not need NDA, but the Opposition needs UPA. Forming a parallel front to UPA is like strengthening the BJP,” the editorial read, adding that the UPA can be pushed ahead by keeping differences with the Congress intact.
In an editorial in party mouthpiece ”Saamana”, the Sena also said that those who don’t want a Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) should make their stand clear publicly, instead of creating confusion by talking behind back.
