In a direct challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, current Maharashtra Minister Nitin Raut asked them to stop dreaming ‘mungerilal ke sapne’ (building castles in the air) of toppling Maharashtra government. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray presides over Maha Vikas Aghadi government formed by Shiv Sena, Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). The alliance robbed BJP off a chance to form a government after 2019 Maharashtra elections. BJP is the single largest party in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.
Nitin Raut, a member of Congress party, was seen warning the BJP in a video clip.
“BJP is trying to topple the state government. Modi and Fadnavis should stop dreaming ‘mungerilal ke sapne’. Everyone should unite in a battle against corona. But they [BJP] do not have any shame left,” Raut can be heard as saying in the video.
