The coming together of the Shiv Sena, Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party in Maharashtra is a big setback for the BJP, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said here on Thursday.
Banerjee asked the BJP to ponder over how the Sena, a “more strident Hindutva party”, joined hands with the other two outfits.
“It happened post-poll. But I can tell you, Shiv Sena is a more strident Hindutva party. But what happened that SS-Congress-NCP all have come together? It is a huge setaback for the BJP,” Banerjee told the media.
