Mumbai: NCP leader Eknath Khadse on Monday lashed out at BJP for its repeated statements on the fall of Maha Vikas Aghadi government. Khadse, who left BJP and joined NCP in October last blaming former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis for ruining his political career, claimed BJP has been making such statements to keep its flock together and thereby curb rising disgruntlement within its legislators.

‘’BJP leaders are making statements about the collapse of the MVA government so that the number of disgruntled legislators should not increase. I know how BJP legislators are uneasy, restless and uncomfortable within the party,’’ said Khadse. ‘’Statements by BJP leaders is also an attempt to prevent disgruntled legislators from leaving the party,’’ he noted.

Khadse was reacting to the statement by state BJP chief Chandrakant Patil that MVA government will fall while Maharashtra is asleep. On the other hand, Fadnavis said the state government will fall due to its internal contradictions.

On Fadnavis’s visit to his house at Muktainagar in Jalgaon district, Khadse said "When I was the leader of the opposition, Fadnavis used to stay with me for 12-18 hours. Former CM used to be at my B-4 bungalow many times during that period.’’

“Fadnavis had also visited Muktainagar as the chief minister,” he said.

Khadse has ruled out the possibility of rejoining the BJP and claimed that the MVA government is stable.
