Without naming NCP (SP) president Sharad Pawar, Modi said, “An INDI alliance leader from Harashtra knows the Congress is losing badly (in elections).  So, he has suggested that small parties merge with the congress so that it atleast stands as an opposition party.” “when the duplicate Shiv Sena (referring to Sen UBT) merges with the Congress.  I will remember Balasaheb Thackeray because the late leader dreamt of a grand Ram mandir in Ayodhya and abolishing Article 370.” he added.  (Maxim News)
