Addressing a press conference in his home district Sindhudurg, Rane said the Congress-NCP-Sena government would not last long as these parties had come together only to protect their personal interests.  "This is not a people's government, in fact it is a 'stay order' government. This government will not last long. Sena, NCP and Congress have come to power only for personal interests," he said.

Since coming to power, Thackeray has ordered the review of several big ticket infrastructure projects, including the multi-billion dollar Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project, and has stayed work on the Metro Line III carshed in green lung Aarey Colony in Mumbai.

"Ten days have passed (since swearing in on  28 November), but the six ministers sworn in are yet to get portfolios. So far, not a single decision in the interest of the people has been taken. This government is not good for the state," Rane claimed.

Attacking Thackeray, he said the former had no experience of holding a Constitutional post and claimed the Sena chief "understands nothing about the bureaucracy". "Development works of the state could come to a halt due to the working style of this government," he added.

The BJP-Sena had fought the October Assembly polls together, winning 161 seats jointly in the 288-member House. However, a stalemate on the sharing of the chief minister's post led to the break up of the alliance, leading to the Sena joining hands with Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to form the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi government.
