"One cannot deny BJP's win in UP and Uttarakhand. But there were elections in three other states also, the results of which were opposite. But no political pundit is ready to talk about it," said the Sena, which is the ruling alliance partner in Maharashtra and at the Centre.
"Though these states are smaller than UP, the results show the sentiments of the people," it further said.
People have voted for the Congress despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi's hard campaigning in the state, it pointed out.
"All of these parties which came together to form the government have gone against the wishes of people," it said.
The Congress emerged as the single largest party by winning 17 out of the total 40 seats in the coastal state in the recent Assembly elections.
In the elections, the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward party won three seats each, and three other seats were bagged by independents. Besides, the NCP bagged one seat.
