Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan today termed as “drama” the Shiv Sena’s criticism of BJP-led government’s policies including demonetisation of high value tenders and dubbed the saffron allies as the “partners in crime”. “Actually, they are partners in crime and want to loot money from the common man,” Chavan said addressing a rally of his party to protest against demonetisation, on his home turf of Nanded.

Hitting out at the ruling allies, Chavan said both the Sena and BJP have failed to run a successful government in Maharashtra and Centre.
