On Sunday, a Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said that the country was heading towards a “fractured mandate” and he accused Prime Minister of it.

The executive editor of Sena’s mouthpiece “Saamana”, Sanjay Raut wrote in his column on Sunday that PM Modi’s stature has “declined” while that of Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi has risen.

In 2014, the Shiv Sena leader wrote that there was a wave in the PM’s support as the voters were influenced to defeat Congress but “the picture has changed today.” He continued that “PM Modi’s larger-than-life image has lost the shine now. Rahul Gandhi’s leadership is not as towering as his. He has gained importance because people are disappointed with the current government.”

Mr. Raut also claims that “While senior leaders in the BJP are worried about its possible poor performance in coming elections, Nitin Gadkari’s statements are an indication of the way winds are blowing. A leader like Gadkari has equal acceptance in the RSS as well as among other BJP leaders. Political conspiracies were hatched to deny Gadkari a second term when he was the BJP president (from 2009 to 2013).”
