Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj
Chavan on Sunday said the Shiv Sena-BJP had disappointed people of
the state and the country when they were installed in power as
alternative to the Congress.

"People of Maharashtra had given Sena-BJP a chance in
1995 and the (Atal Behari) Vajpayee government got an
opportunity to rule the country in 1998. However, they have
been rejected by the voters after one term," Chavan said at
the third anniversary of Marathi daily `Prahaar` owned by
state Industries minister Narayan Rane.

He alleged that the opposition in Maharashtra was
attempting to resort to violence ahead of the local bodies
elections scheduled later this year.

But people of the state know what is best for them, he
added.

Rane claimed that the opposition was targeting Congress
with an eye on the upcoming polls. However, people know where
their interest and welfare is, he added.

He also called upon the media to introspect.
