Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday said the Shiv Sena-BJP had disappointed people when they were voted to power as an alternative to Congress.
    
"People of Maharashtra had given Sena-BJP a chance in 1995 and the (Atal Behari) Vajpayee government got an opportunity to rule the country in 1998. However, they have been rejected by the voters after one term," Chavan said at the third anniversary of Marathi daily 'Prahaar' owned by state Industries Minister Narayan Rane.
    
He alleged the opposition in Maharashtra was attempting to resort to violence ahead of the local bodies elections scheduled later this year.
