Adding insult to BJP's injury after its decimation on Tuesday, the Sena also said the "broom-wielding" AAP reduced the party to "dirt".
Coming to the defence of Modi, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis tried to play down the BJP's debacle, saying that winning and losing are part of the electoral battle and this outcome should not be seen as a verdict on the Prime Minister.
Stating that the Sena has been BJP's long-time associate, Fadnavis said that as an able coalition partner, it should be with the party in "good times and bad". He was talking to reporters in Nashik.

Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia said that Prime Minister's "magic" has faded and his development agenda stands exposed with AAP's landslide victory.
"Modi ka mayajaal toot gaya (Modi's magic has ended). His much hyped development agenda stands exposed," Scindia told reporters in Bhopal when asked about the poll outcome.
Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the victory of Aam Aadmi Party reflected people's strong sentiments against the BJP and the Prime Minister.
"The result was the outcome of people's strong sentiments against BJP and Prime Minister Modi and along with that Congress votes were also lost," Chandy told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram.
Ignoring the remonstrations by some in the BJP for blaming Modi for the debacle, the Sena said in a scathing editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana' that the party should make it clear who would own up to the blame.
"The entire election campaign was run in the name of Modi. Anna Hazare said this is Modi's defeat. We too feel the same. The way the party attributed its success in other states to Modi, they should do the same for Delhi," Sena said.
