Congress Calls BJP 'Morally Corrupt' as Sena Accuses Ally of Poaching MLAs Ahead of Meeting With Governor
In an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana, the party said it had been receiving complaints about new MLAs being approached with money.
Wading into the battle, the Congress accused the BJP of being “morally corrupt”.
Sena’s allegations come on a day when the BJP is scheduled to meet Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari "with a message approved by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis”, senior leader Sudhir Mungantiwar said.
The BJP and the Sena are locked in a standoff over the post of chief minister in new government and sharing of ministerial portfolios.
In the recent Assembly polls, the BJP emerged as the single-largest party by winning 105 seats in the 288-member House.
