Shiv Sena attacks BJP over Bengal, J&K situation
:Barely a day after Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and BJP President Amit Shah met here, the Shiv Sena on Monday launched a fresh attack on its ally —this time for the grim situation in Jammu and Kashmir and West Bengal.
“Amit Shah says if mid-term polls are held in Maharashtra, they will win hands down. They can also win the presidential election. But who will win the war in Jammu and Kashmir?” the Sena asked pointedly in an edit in the party mouthpieces ‘Saamana and Dopahar Ka Saamana.
Expressing its concern over the renewed spate of terror in the Kashmir Valley and the violence in West Bengal’s Darjeeling, the Sena said these heavenly places on earth are currently passing through a bad spell, but “some people” are more eager about winning midterm elections in Maharashtra.
“We wish them all the best. However, we are not perturbed about winning or losing midterm elections in Maharashtra. Our greatest worry is whether Jammu and Kashmir will remain on the map of India in the long run,” the edit said.
“The BJP is standing solidly with ‘anti-national elements’, it is backing (Chief Minister) Mehbooba Mufti, who in turn, keeps making reckless statements, but not a single ‘Parivar’ member has shown guts to challenge her,” noted the edit.
