NCP Chief Sharad Pawar slams BJP, says 'misuse of authority'

Confident that any BJP attempt to bring down the government of Maharashtra will not succeed, NCP Supreme Sharad Pawar has declared that the Maha Vikas Aghadi dispensation led by Uddhav Thackeray is stable and will continue to rule the state.

He also described the Compliance Directorate (ED) behaviour as "misuse of authority" against ruling alliance leaders and their family members.

Last month, the MVA government comprising Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress completed a year. Different BJP leaders have been saying during this time that the government would fall, citing ideological differences among the partners of the alliance.
