BJP general secretary Gopinath Munde, commenting on Shiv Sena's statement to support NCP Chief Sharad Pawar's candidature as prime minister, said that Sena does not adhere "Dharma of alliance."

"Sena's statement for supporting Sharad Pawar's candidature for premiership is deplorable," he said.

Munde, who was here as a part of "Shetkari Sangharsh Abhiyan Yatra", was speaking to media persons today afternoon.

"Opposition leader L K Advani is our prime ministerial candidate," he said.

He said that Shiv Sena betrayed BJP and supported Congress-backed Presidential candidate Pratibha Patil instead of supporting Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, the BJP candidate for the post.

Now they are making the same mistake by supporting Pawar, he said.

Commenting on the Karnataka-Maharashtra border dispute, he said no party can solve the dispute of Karnataka- Maharashtra border.

The leader also criticised the loan waiver announced by Union and state governments saying, "It is not a loan waiver, but a loan recovery scheme. The government does not care what happens to farmers."

He demanded that the loan waiver should also be announced for Dalits, tribals and landless laborers.
