Shiv Sena criticises BJP over poor showing in Assembly Elections 2016 in its mouthpiece Saamna
Shiv Sena, BJP's ally in Maharashtra has rejected the existence of 'Modi wave'. In its mouthpiece, Saamna, Shiv Sena has criticised the BJP for not being able to defeat the regional parties in Tamil Nadu, Kerela, Pondicherry and West Bengal.

It has said that the 'Modi magic' failed to work in four states. In an editorial in Saamna, it has claimed that the election results in Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry were "nothing shocking or surprising,"

"The BJP could only defeat the Congress in Assam but failed to defeat Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, Jayalalithaa in Tamil Nadu or the Left in Kerala and the Congress won in Puducherry. We have to admit that the BJP could not defeat the regional parties," the editorial said.

It questioned the BJP for not talking about the defeat it faced in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry, while publicising that Congress was decimated in Assam and Kerala.

Questioning the BJP's strategy, the editorial asked that if BJP had accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of promoting corruption, goondaism and terrorism, why did people still vote for her?

Taking shots at the Prime Minister and Amit Shah, it asked how the BJP could be satisfied with such small wins when party president, Amit Shah, had called for a 'Mamata-mukt Bengal'.

Talking sarcastically about the "acche din", it said that for BJP, "acche din" only translates to opening an account.

"We have to admit that the BJP could not defeat regional parties", it added.
