The Shiv Sena on Thursday accused the governors of non-BJP-ruled states of acting like rogue elephants and trampling under their feet constitutional democracy, laws and political culture.
Without taking any name, the party said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana: “The governors in non-BJP-ruled states are like rogue elephants and their mahouts (handlers) are sitting in New Delhi. Such elephants trample democratic processes, laws, political culture under their feet and set new precedence.”
The Sena asked whether it was appropriate that the governors were using all their power to destabilise state governments because they had been formed by non-BJP parties. Such efforts are affecting the unity of the country, the editorial added.
