Mumbai: Maharashtra’s declining position in terms of industrial investment has pushed the BJP on the back foot, what with the Opposition pinning the blame on the state government and calling it a “disastrous” situation, and the Sena joining the chorus saying that the “development bubble has finally burst”.

Former chief minister and MPCC chief Ashok Chavan said, “When the Congress alliance was in power, the state was always number one in attracting investment but in four years, the picture has rapidly changed.”
