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.
