NEW DELHI: Asserting that the Uttarakhand episode has ‘humiliated the Centre, the Shiv Sena on Thursday said this decision should have been taken diligently.

“The entire episode of Uttarakhand has humiliated the Centre because this decision should have been taken with more patience and considerations, it (Centre) should have been diligent in its approach but we think this didn’t happen,” Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI.

“The episode of Uttarakhand should not repeat, it has been the advice of Shiv Sena since long,” he added.

Attempting to corner the Centre for creating a crisis in the hill state, Raut said: “When one gets absolute mandate, then in one way there is terrorism of majority.”

“The terrorism whether it is of gun or it is of power or majority is a threat to the nation. And we have been seeing that danger from the era of Indira Gandhi and we have also seen its consequences,” he added.

In a veiled attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Shiv Sena leader said that one should be more loyal and humble when people give him the absolute majority.

“Moreover, the majority and the power are never permanent, today it is with you and tomorrow it will be with someone else,” he added.

President's rule has been lifted in Uttarakhand. The development came after the Supreme Court yesterday declared that Congress has won the floor test held in the state Assembly on Tuesday.

The court said, of the 62 votes in the 71-member assembly, Harish Rawat had won 33 votes. Nine rebel MLAs were not allowed to take part in the vote.
