The BJP on Friday said NCP MP Supriya Sule’s attack against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was to get to the political centre stage and it exposed a power tussle within their organisation. BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari said, “Last few days, she has been targeting the chief minister. It shows her aspiration to get to centrestage of politics. It reflects the proxy war within the NCP for leadership.”

Sule, at a function last week, had commented how Fadnavis often loses his cool. Although Fadnavis ignored the comment, BJP leaders said, “Sule’s comment is an outcome of the restlessness of a party that has lost power.”

Bhandari said, “We understand why NCP is worried. When several NCP leaders are facing investigation on corruption charges coupled with uncertain political future, they are bound to agitate.” NCP MLA Jeetendra Awadh said, “What is wrong in a NCP MP expressing her views against the government? As the opposition member or leader, everybody has the right to speak on public matters. Why should the BJP react? The BJP should not worry about what’s happening in other’s house. They should mind their own house. They should see how many leaders within their own party are rallying against the chief minister.”
