The Shiv Sena on Wednesday took at dig at the 'shadow cabinet' set up by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, saying the "chief minister's post" in the new formation is lying vacant.
In sarcastic remarks, an editorial in Shiv Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' also said it would have been good if there was a "shadow governor" for the swearing-in of the shadow cabinet.
To keep an eye on the state government, a party which has one MLA in the Assembly has formed a 'shadow cabinet', it said without naming the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
The "post of chief minister" in the shadow cabinet is vacant, it said while taunting the MNS.
"There should have been a shadow governor to administer the oath of office and secrecy to the shadow cabinet. If this had happened, the game of shadows would have been more colorful. The developments show there is still humour left in politics," the Shiv Sena said.
