While speaking to ANI on Maharashtra government formation on November 22, the Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari said, "This (Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress) is an alliance of opportunism and they will not be able to give Maharashtra a stable Government." "There are ideological differences among Congress, Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). The government will not go much ahead even if it is formed," he added. "Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena alliance was based on ideology of Hindutva and even today we don't have many ideological differences. Breaking of such an alliance is not only a loss to the country but also to Hindutva cause and to Maharashtra," Transport Minister further stated.
