In an editorial in the Sena mouthpiece Saamana and Dopahar Ka Saamana, it pointed out that even the majority support in the 40-member Goa assembly claimed by the BJP before forming the government appeared to be fixed.
"The smaller parties gave letters of conditional consent to the Governor that they would support the BJP only if Manohar Parrikar became the Chief Minister... Though it would been difficult for the BJP to select a CM from among its 13 elected legislators," the Sena said.
"Even when Parrikar was the Defence Minister, he spent more time in his home state and would issue empty threats to Pakistan."
The Sena asked Parrikar to remember that the BJP had been voted out by the people in the state and the latest developments were simply beyond the public expectations.
