Indore (Madhya Pradesh): BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said on Tuesday his party was monitoring unrest in the ruling Shiv Sena in neighboring Maharashtra from a distance.
The main Maha Vikas Aghadi constituent in the neighboring state was thrown into disarray on June 21 after top leader Eknath Shinde rebelled against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and was now in Guwahati with a significant number of dissidents .
“We have no role in the current unrest in Maharashtra. This (rebellion) is the Shiv Sena’s internal conflict. We just stand at a distance and watch it,” Vijayvargiya told reporters.
Speaking about reports that Sainiks loyal to Thackeray had attacked offices of rebel MPs, he said efforts were being made to create a “West Bengal-like situation” in Maharashtra by sowing fear and terror.
Vijayvargiya, who was one of the BJP’s top strategists for the World Bank polls, added that the people of Maharashtra would not want the state to fall prey to lawlessness.
